Library Place

Library Place runs from the eastern end of the Royal Square to Broad Street and got its name because Jersey's first public library was built there in the 17th century. In the 19th century several locally owned banks established their headquarters there and some of the magnificent buildings constructed for them remain in use today by major UK banks.

And even after the public library moved to the Royal Square, Library Place was home to Payn's Circulating Library. Advertisements in almanacs (see below) show it operating there from at least 1852 to 1886, before moving to 27 King Street.
