Great surprise indeed! Especially considering that we arrived here by pure chance, following the steps of the story game of the Questo app.

Hidden away in a side street, but well worth a visit.
A lovely period library with plenty of atmosphere. Just to look at the books and history and then to sit in the shade in the small courtyard garden is lovely
We always pop in when in Gibraltar

The Garrison Library is an amazing and delightful survival in an atmospheric colonial building beautifully preserved and presented. But wait! There's more - it is also a perfectly functional and functioning research library, full of treasures, which are open to consult and visitors are assisted by the friendly and helpful staff. I was able to spend a productive and enjoyable several hours there and it was the highlight of my two days in Gibraltar. Visit, even if only to admire one of the remarkable relics of Britain's colonial past.

Decided to go on the guided tour on the last day of our visit. An absolute joy. The place is an architectural joy with the glass fronted cabinets containing an untapped plethora of historical knowledge. The guide was knowledgeable and interesting, and the place a haven of peace in a bustling city.
When the books have been finally catalogued, I am sure that historical researchers will be flocking there eager for the original knowledge sitting on the shelves.
And it’s free.

You would think the Library was easy to find - simply stroll down Library Street off Main Street but it wasn’t to be as initially I just couldn’t locate it. In the end I asked a security guard outside one of the Government Offices and it would appear I’d walked past the Library a couple of times - it’s set back and up a short hill opposite front entrance of Elliot Hotel and car park (see my pics). The front garden has a couple of nice trees but be careful on surrounding path as it can be slippery (there’s also a rear garden). Once inside the entrance you turn right to ground floor area - staircase to uppper floor(s) was roped off when I visited. Some interesting book titles to look at and I was surprised to find collections of much more modern works as well. However, I doubt any of the old tomes have seen the light of day for many a year and some looked in a sad state. Interesting pictures and paintings dotted around. Although the grandeur’s become somewhat faded you can perhaps imagine what it must have been like not that many years ago. Worth half an hour of your time and there’s no entry charge.

The Garrison Library is situated opposite the Elliot Hotel and there is no charge to enter. If you go on a Friday at 11am there is a free guided tour of the library and you are able to go upstairs. There are thousands of books behind glass doors, both reading and reference books, which do not leave the library at all. Upstairs there is a lecture hall/ball room. Our guide on our visit explained in the olden days the library was for serving officers only, and when they held a ball the ladies were not allowed to enter through the front door, they had to use the spiral staircase in the garden to enter the ballroom. The garden is lovely, its peaceful ad tranquil, the library is well worth a visit. Occasionally, as on our visit local artist are allowed to exhibit their work.Even though we are now in a digital world, the Gibraltar Chronicle is printed everyday and a copy is stored in the library. The staff are very welcoming and will answer any questions you have.

The garrison library is tucked up off main st, directly opposite the Elliot Hotel.
It stands in a beautiful colonial square, tree lined, and like stepping into a movie set, all the buildings in the square date back to the 1800s and more, all have been refurbished and are now government offices, but you can put your head inside all of them, no one minds.
There's also an early church and the Gibraltar chronicle, its Gibraltars original newspaper and still going today.
The garrison library sits all on its own inside a walled garden, a beautiful place to sit on a hot day under the trees, admission is free, it's now part of the university of Gibraltar, inside its like being in the 1800s, beautiful big rooms, tall ceilings, with some of the best bookcases and pictures anywhere, and a rear courtyard to sit and be quiet, I've been a few times now, and it's not hard to imagine the officers of the garrison sitting here reading or relaxing with a Gin and tonic.
It's well worth taking a few minutes to wander about here, out of the hustle and bustle of Main Street.

I have been twice to the garrison library . Once to a wedding that was held in the garden and another time to an evening of talks.The library has the charm of something that has stayed the same when other places have become modernised. The old books are rather beautiful and kept locked in old fashioned cupboards.

When you approach The Garrison Library you know by the colonial façade you are entering a special place.When you get in you are not disappointed, with row upon row of books & newspapers which span the centuries & you can imagine the officers here during the siege & in later times.
The approach is to a certain extent by the hap hazard new buildings & some of the semi derelict older buildings.Also for we older people the climb up from Main St.is just a little daunting.
