The National Library and Information System Authority (NALIS) currently has four exhibitions mounted in the main exhibit spaces on the ground floor as well as in the Heritage Library of the National Library in Port of Spain.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Little Carib Theatre. In commemoration of this milestone, the theatre has mounted the exhibition, “The Little Carib Theatre at 75: A Short Trip Through the Decades” at the Rotunda, National Library of Trinidad and Tobago.
Launched on March 08, in collaboration with NALIS and sponsored by the National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago, the exhibition chronologically showcases the theatre’s history from the 1940’s to present day. It also highlights the founder of the theatre and dance icon, Beryl McBurnie’s life and legacy. The public is invited to share memories of Beryl or visits to the Little Carib Theatre in the Big Book of Beryl situated at the centre of the exhibition.
