The jaunty seagoing yachtie named Lawrence Birch (NOT of the John Birch Society) is the kind, unassuming star behind the success of the tiny Public Library on the wee Spanish Virgin Island of Culebra, a delightful U.S. Commonwealth island possession, just 17 miles east of the main island of Puerto Rico. Culebra's ferryboat service is so poorly maintained that the nearly unknown islet's minuscule tourism stream is floundering, but those mechanical woes do NOT affect the Public Library. Mighty Lawrence of Culebra will help you with all your library and Internet needs in the cool, tiny recesses of the air-conditioned library. On certain nights, you can be lucky enough to attend the library's all-too-real 28-seat Caribbean Cinema, showing excellent vintage films. This library is a real treat for sunbaked tourists enjoying Culebra's sparkling Zoni Beach and Flamenco Beach. Don't miss it! Donate a 10-spot to help the little library.
