Family Library

The Family Library is a safe little haven tucked away in Upper Douglas, behind a children's playground.

Visitors to the Island are welcome to borrow books for the duration of their stay and take part in our activities like seasonal events, art sessions and workshops, board games, drop-in crafts and quizzes.

We have plenty of comfy seating and lots of independent comics to browse and enjoy during your visit.

Visitors can come to the library and enjoy the collections and activities; if you want to join and borrow books you will need identification of your home address and the name and address of where you are staying.
