Greater
Caribbean Library

Greater Caribbean Library 
We believe in the historical and cultural significance of the Greater Caribbean region and the works and authors in our collection reflect this focus. In our small library of the Greater Caribbean you will find works by authors from the Colombian Caribbean and by writers from Haiti, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and other places in the Caribbean. We are building our collection, which is still small, but we invite you to visit us to learn more about the materials we have available for consultation.
