The highlights of Lambeth Palace Library's 400th anniversary exhibition are now available in an iPhone app.

Lambeth Palace Library launches iPhone app

During Summer 2010 visitors were invited in to the London residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury to view a special exhibition of 'Treasures of Lambeth Palace Library'.

The library – founded in 1610 under the will of Archbishop Richard Bancroft – describes itself as one of the earliest public libraries in England.

The app features images of some the items which were exhibited and supporting commentary from the audio tour including an introduction from Dr Rowan Williams.

The content of the app is limited, and the navigation is basic. Nonetheless, it is a welcome development that the audio and images created for the exhibition will continue to be available to a wide audience for years to come.

• The Lambeth Palace Library app costs 2.39 and is available from the iTunes App Store.
