Barbados Public Library

The Old Barbados Public Library

The Barbados Public Library was established sometime around 1847.

It appears that the 1840’s was the time for establishing libraries in the eastern Caribbean.

Notice of a bill to establish a Public Library in Barbados was given by a Mr. Young at a meeting of the House of Assembly on September 21, 1847.

At the beginning of the 20th century the Library was housed in the west wing of the Parliament Buildings in which the Government Savings Bank was later located.


H.O.P.E. for Children, is a registered children’s charity (No. 508) that was established in 2001, to provide assistance to underprivileged ‘at risk’ children in primary schools.
