Library and Archives
The Tuvalu National Library and Archives was established on the 1st September 1978 as part of Tuvalu's preparation towards their political independence.
It then officially opens its services to the public on 1st September 1978. This came about as the call from the concern Government for setting up of an institution to ensure that our documentary heritages are safeguarded as evidence and for research purposes.
Tuvalu needed a department to control and looked after Tuvalu Public Records that were deposited in the Western Pacific Archives. Also as a newly born nation Tuvalu needs a library to build the literacy level capacity of its people.
