Guyana National Library allows you to enrich your knowledge with an abundance of books, historical documents, manuscripts, and phonograph recordings. Founded in 1909, this institution serves as a public lending library and encourages book lovers to nurture their various interests. Initially, a large iron grille stood between readers and the books.
