The Haynes Library in Governor's Harbour

I went to the library for free internet. This historical landmark was built by Governor William Frederick Haynes Smith in 1897 and is the oldest Government Complex on the island. The upstairs has always housed a library and the downstairs held offices, including the former official residence of the local doctor. The building has been renovated through the efforts of a civic organization called "Friends of the Library" and is once again a Public Library. The success to date is due to the commitment from the Board of Trustees, Operating Committee, volunteers and the worldwide membership. Visitors, students, and locals can visit the library and have full use of the Internet cafe and materials. Hours of operation: Monday to Saturday 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. / Closed on Sundays and Holidays
