The Nevis Public Library service falls under the Ministry of Education & Library Services. Two locations form this department, the Central Library in Charlestown and the St. George’s Library in Gingerland. In upholding its motto “Information for Development” the Nevis Public Library Service is committed to the delivery of relevant, comprehensive and timely information to meet the educational, cultural and recreational reading needs of the Nevisian public.

Our programmes include the Annual Summer Environmental Awareness Progamme, SAT Preparation Classes and weekly Pre-School Storytime sessions. Exhibitions in observance of national and international days and milestones are also mounted throughout the year.
The Nevis Public Library Service is devoted to the preservation and transmission of quality resources and the provision of lifelong learning opportunities in support of the development of our society.
