Exterior - Haynes Library

Haynes Library is a quaint and charming public library overlooking the harbour and cupids cay. The Library is also a historical landmark, Originally built in 1897 the library was saved from being wrecked and then refurbished in the 90’s. This is a great place to spend some time, relax and read a book. With all of the doors open the sea breeze just blows straight through the building.

The library provides a great collection of books; along with computers, software, printers and high speed wifi. You can also get information on what to do in Eleuthera, maps and directions from the librarian. Even as a visitor you can borrow books, which is great for a rainy day when you’re stuck indoors.
