In a debate in Parliament over the Archives (Amendment) Bill 2010, the opposition's political party was criticised for its neglect of the National Library of Barbados, that lead to poor working conditions and the exposure of library materials and publications to harm ad possible devastation. The article also reports on the view expressed by a Member of Parliament about the value of the National Library to the nation.
"I would hope that the original free library in Coleridge Street can be cleaned and put back to perfection because it is part of our culture.
"It brings nostalgia to a lot of us who used to go in there and we have to get the type of expertise that can restore that free library to its former glory."
