David C. Thompson Community Library, Wemyss Bight


The Wemyss Bight Community Library was established in 2004, by a local business woman Mrs Clara Williams. She saw a need for a lifelong learning Educational Resource Center where children could improve their learning abilities. Permission was granted to use the teachers residence in front of the school.

The library is a place where children can have access to after school programs, tutoring, internet, book clubs, research resources.

The Mission of the library is to establish lifelong learning programs that would benefit the entire south Eleuthera community, especially the youth.
