Oliveira Library

About us

Welcome to the Oliveira Library page, you are in the right place!

The Oliveira Library was originally opened by Mr. D. A. R. Naylor, B.E.M and Chairman of the Isle of Wight Health Authority on the 8th December 1984, in memory of Mr A. B. Oliviera who was a consultant sugeon working at St Mary's Hospital. Mr A. B. Oliveira very tragically passed away under anesthesia in 1983 when having a routine procedure, and so the consultants of St Mary's hospital donated money to open up the Oliveria Library in his name.

It is our mission to capture our Trust's core values in everything that we do, using Compassion, Accountability, Respect and Everyone counts to provide great quality customer service to our Library users.
