Overview


The Rev. Canon Henry Williams Cope, started the Westmoreland Library. He was the Rector of the St. George’s Anglican Church in Savanna-la-mar. The library at that time was built up mainly from donations and was housed in the Anglican Church Hall. This small service was operated by Miss Hazel Drummond who served as first voluntary Librarian from 1946 to 1948. A number of persons worked assiduously towards the development of the library and served as members of the managing committee under the chairmanship of the Rev. Canon Cope. By May 1948 when the Jamaica Library Service was established, there were seven hundred (700) books and seventy (70) adult members and this service became the nucleus for the formation of the Westmoreland Parish library.   READ MORE...
