History

The origins of a public library service in Anguilla can be traced as far back as 1938. It originally began as a subscription library in that it catered only for individuals who were willing or could afford to pay subscription fees. However in 1950, the library began to offer its services free of charge. This was in response to one of the recommendations stipulated by UNESCO in its manifesto on public libraries. From then on to this date government assumed responsibility for financing public library services in Anguilla.
