Pignon is fortunate to be the home of one of the few public libraries in Haiti. The library was built by Olivet Baptist Church, Des Moines, Iowa in 2009 and is managed by the Comite Bienfaisance/Promise for Haiti. The library has books for children and adults in Creole, French and English. Students can study for their annual exams or just find a clean and condusive environment to do their homework and memorize the day's lesson. Many professional books are also housed in the library for use by local patrons.

A very unique feature of the library grounds is that fruit trees are planted to landscape the ground and the mature crops are given away to the poor in the community. Pictured are some beautiful fruit trees and a papaya giveaway at the library.
