Built in the late 18th century, this octagonal-shaped building was originally used as a jail for the island of New Providence. Later, in 1873, it was converted into a public library (the island's first), and still serves a library purpose. The building also houses an interesting museum of artifacts (including rare Arawak tribe items), old books, documents, and photographs that tell the story of the island. The public still comes here looking for reading material, as the library stocks a great collection of old and new books and is open to anyone who's looking for a good read.
