Loved the historic building, once a doctor's home now a library. Was happy to purchase a Jazz Fest tee shirt to support the library efforts. Enjoyed the historic church next door too.

Cruised by on our trip to Cupids Cay. The Library was a fabulous building and a great photo opportunity.

We had to find an American phone book. We went to the library. The young girl there was so helpful. She let us use the computer she was on to find a US phone number we needed. We were not charged at all. The bathroom was also available for use!

We needed to print while on the island and stumbled across this little gem of a library. If you need internet or a printer this is the place to go.

I could have spent the afternoon. I perused the building and saw several books that were appealing as well as the setting.

We stopped in to use their internet. Quite the lifesaver when you don't have it at your vacation rental. It's a lovely, historic building. And beautiful views of the harbor from their windows.
