Bermuda National Library
History and museums
The Bermuda National Library is located in the capital city of Hamilton. It was founded in 1839 by a British soldier, administrator, and meteorologist, the governor William Reid, who reigned as governor from 1839 to 1846 and was at the time located in what is today's Cabinet Building.
It is now located in Par-la-ville Park off of Queen Street and Par-la-ville Road, between Church and Front Streets in the capital. It is only open during traditional daytime hours Monday through Friday and on Saturdays.
