“Perfect for families with little children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

There is a great reading room here filled with books and games for toddlers and little kids! Right on the water too so you can go shelling or just walk the beach from there. There are computers upstairs you can rent for $5 an hour.

“Not to miss in Governor's Harbour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Historic beautiful old building with quite a selection of books for adults and a reading room for children; computers and internet access available upstairs for a fee; weekly gathering place for winter residents and guests; and don't miss the 120+ year old St. Patrick's Anglican Church building just next door!

Quaint and adorable library with very friendly and kind staff. A great place to use the internet or make a call if you need it. $5 per hour.
