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.
