The Royal Library.

Royal Library pre-Cataclysm.

The Royal Library (or the Stormwind Library) of Stormwind City is located inside Stormwind Keep. There is an extensive collection of scrolls, tomes, books, and texts on anything of historical, religious, cultural, or bureaucratic significance here,[citation needed]  and adventurers from all races of the Alliance come here to peruse the lore. Milton Sheaf seems to be the head librarian.

The Royal Library boasted the Royal Gallery before the chamber was destroyed after Deathwing's attack.[1]

Harrison Jones teaches archaeology in the library.


After the Second War, the Book of Medivh was stored here for a period. The book was stolen by Ner'zhul's death knights with the aid of agents from Alterac.[2]

During a memorial ceremony for Varian Wrynn after the Battle for Broken Shore, Magus Solgaze was doing research in the library. The ceremony was interrupted by a Burning Legion attack, and the library was protected by the royal guard.[3]

  • Mathias Shaw states that a seldom-read book is a convenient place to stash a note. He also sometimes stashes away useful older history books.[4]
