The National Library of Haiti is Haiti's legal deposit library, with collection of approximately 26,000 volumes. It is located in the capital, Port-au-Prince and is the principal library of the city. The current head of the library is Monsieur Emmanuel Ménard.The first Haitian National Library was established in 1825, during the presidency of Jean Pierre Boyer (1818-1843). A cabinet was purchased for the library for 75 gourdes (one Haitian gourde=approx. $20). Later that year about 936 gourdes were spent for the purchase of 444 volumes ordered by a Dr. Pescay. This library may have been destroyed during the 1860s, when political clashes saw the destruction of many items of cultural significance in Haiti.
