“Only public library I know of in Guyana.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

The only reasons I like this place are the look of the building and the fact that it has books. The books are mostly outdated versions and so there's little value in terms of aiding research. The library does, however, have some pretty great books by Guyanese authors that you probably won't find elsewhere.

“cool quiet retreat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

It was place to go to when the sun got too much. Cool, calm, relaxed environment. Pleasantly surprised with the selection of books. Staff was welcoming and helpful.
