“Free Library”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

I have taken libraries for granted here in the US. Not all countries have free libraries.

“Great example of what local vision and effort can accomplish.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

Very refreshing, beautiful little library. It is worth the visit just to see the traditional caribbean architecture and the school children working diligently on their homework.
Be sure to drop a dollar in the donation box as this is a local effort and needs your support.

“A cute little library a short distance from the cruise port”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

This library is just a short distance from the cruise pier. It was so nice to walk up the stairs and both the doors were wide open w/ various, colorful posters on the doors encouraging people to read. It is small, but has different sections. We found one section in the back that had a room w/computers. When we walked out the side door, we found a couple of small groups of school children in their uniforms. We talked w/a trio of girls and found them very sweet and friendly. There was also a huge banyon(?) tree to the side of the library that has benches for people to sit and read or visit. The library and this side park-style area overlooks the water. All in all it was a nice visit and fun to visit w/the locals.
