For a very small library on a Pacific Island, this place has an incredible range of books for adults and children. They offer visitor memberships too.

Fairly new so we decided to try it. Well worth the visit. It takes about 45 minutes or so to go thru. A bonus is having a knowledgeable staff member on site to explain the background of the people, migration route and history. Very informative. Bonus was 4-5 different tanks explaining about the life of coral and how it is being impacted environmentally.

My wife joined the library for our 3 month stay and managed to get through a number of the 10,000 books on offer. I found the museum very interesting with early history and wood carvings. Allow plenty of time for a visit. Second hand books could be purchased which was a plus.
