The Schoelcher Library: A Building Not Easy to ForgetIf this library doesn’t look much like your average Caribbean building, there’s a reason for that. It’s not. The entire library was first built in France back in 1889, then shipped piece by piece to the island Martinique as an exquisite monument to Victor Schoelcher, the French abolitionist writer from the early 19th century. No Caribbean travel experience in Martinique is complete without taking in this building’s unique architecture.
