Newtown Square, Pennsylvania wonder
"if there are any self-service laundries
on the island. We're interested in finding out so
we can decrease the amount of
clothes we need to take."
We haven't noticed any self-service laundromats, but A-1 Laundry
will launder or dry clean your clothes for you. Their number is
497-3018 and they are located in The Valley, in the back of the
complex across from Ruthwill Auditorium.
Laundry is reasonably priced and ready in a day.
Postal Rates. On January 2, 1998, the cost of a letter to the US and Canada increases to EC$1.50, to Europe is EC$1.90, to the Caribbean is EC$1.00, and local letters go up from EC$0.20 to EC$0.30. There is a new EC$5 fee for clearing a parcel through customs at the post office.
The Anguilla telephone area code changed from 809 to 264 in Fall 1997.
Library Books. Here is a tip from a vistor:
As a librarian, I ask that you pass along this tip about the Library. For an $8 US deposit, they will allow you to check out unlimited titles. They have a wide selection of paperbacks and some hardbacks that make good "beach reading." Hours are 9:15 to 5 most weekdays (I think they close earlier on Wed.). Please suggest to people that they make their $8 deposit a contribution to the library when they return their last set of books. [editor: Good Tip for all our avid vacation readers.]
