History

The Carmichael Road Public Library was built in the heart of the constituency to further the Government’s policy to continue the expansion of community libraries, and to provide study spaces for seekers of information. This library was completed in April 1999 although the official opening was not held until July 26th, 2001. Ms. Roslyn Thompson, a former A. F. Adderley teacher was released to the library in March 1999 to act in the capacity of supervisor. She has since retired and Ms Maud Evans is now the library Supervisor.

Ms. June Hutchinson became the first person to take out membership in the library on September 28th, 2001, just two months following the official opening in July.

The library’s mission is to provide access to accurate information that meets patron’s educational, social and cultural needs, and to ensure quality service in a safe, clean environment.
