A decent sized library for a small island of 4500 people. There were lots of books and the librarians were very helpful. Internet was really expensive so if you need to kill time, renting a book would be the way to go.

This was my first time in Tuvalu as a tourist & stayed for 12 nights from 31/01/13 to 12/02/13, enjoyed many local walks around FUNAFUTI & decide to call into the Library, had a long interesting conversation with the staff, appeared to have a good...More
