Bio[edit | edit source]

The Castaways Library is the collection of books and periodicals turned up by the Castaways following the wreck of the S.S. Minnow, many of which have proved beneficial to their survival on the island. Some of the books have turned out to be the property of the Skipper, Mr. Howell or the The Professor; it's also possible some of the books have been left on the Minnow by previous passengers.
