This little pink building is the quintessential Bahamas. Love coming here to watch the sunset and local kids playing in the water in the afternoons. Beautiful!

We visited this historical building. Two heroic ladies (and others) saved this building from destruction. There is a weekly event discussing Bahamian history. BE Sure and visit. BUY a T shirt too.

What a well stocked library! This is a lovely building in a great setting. It's the place to get some great Eleuthera Jazz t-shirts too.

What a beautiful place and building! They have a large section of book exchange books, which I was happy to find since I went through all of the books I brought with me quickly! Nice librarian and landscaping put front, stop and smell the flowers!

I believe so - there were High School girls doing homework on computers on the 2nd floor, but the library lost power when we were there. Best to contact the library directly.
