In 2001 concerned members of the community of Landrail Point wrote to the Director of Education
requesting use of the vacant primary school building for a library. In 2003 two computers were donated
by the OAS internet project for the library.
Mrs Marina Gibson initiated and oversaw the setting up of the library. Books were donated by winter residents. The library was refurbished during late 2004 / early 2005. Donations were made by Ms Marina Gibson, Mr Jim Lightbourn and Mr Andrew McTaggart. Ms Tanya Moss, who had been hired to supervise the library, also held fund raising activities. The library was first opened three days a week from 4 to 6pm.
Ms Moss had to leave for a short time and Ms Sherika Wright was brought on to take her place. Both ladies alternated working at the library until Ms Wright became the permanent library supervisor in 2006.
The Colonel Hill Community Library is housed in a classroom within the Colonel Hill High School.
