There's a small gallery here, worth visiting. But there's not much to see (a few items on the 2nd floos). But the staff is super-friendly, there's a nearby bathroom, and the airconditioning on the second floor is very good. You can use your computer here...More

I was expecting something a little historical or something, but it's just a bare-bones basic library. Nothing wrong with it or anything, just not worth going out of your way to visit. The museum in the building adjoining it is neat though.

There are a variety of options to check out. I really like the Bermuda section. The WIFI has never worked every time I have gone to the library.

The library was a wonderful place to start our search for long gone relatives. The staff of the library was very helpful.

It is a library, rather small and quaint, but a pleasant place that we found interesting as we toured Hamilton.

Located in the centre this small but friendly library offers free wifi outside the premises. They have a good collection of Bermudian books, and the staff are friendly and helpful.

This was the social place at night in Bermuda. Locals hanging outside close library at all hours to get free wi-fi. Truly a great way to experience the local culture. Our teens loved this place! Great hangout

This is air conditioned, and it has a special section of books devoted to Bermuda history. This part is worthwhile. Still, it is an extremely small building, and if you are going because of the Internet access, WiFi is slow and spotty, and they only...More
