Nassau Public Library Reading Room and Museum

The Nassau Public Library is an octagonal shaped building that is located at the southern end of Parliament Square that borders Shirley Street. I was constructed as a jail in 1797 and was the first building to be constructed in Parliament Square. In 1879, it was converted to a library, reading room, and museum. The small prison cells which once housed prisoners are now used to store books, charts, Arawak artifacts and a collection of historic prints, colonial documents and newspapers. Admission is Free.
