Saba’s library donates in aid of Philipsburg Jubilee Library


Philips­burg Jubilee Library has received a US $900 dona­tion from Saba’s Queen Wil­helmina Library.

Saba’s library organized a fundraising drive on Mon­day, October 23, to assist St. Maarten’s Library after the passing of Hurricanes Irma and Maria and damage to the Library’s structure.

The much-needed funds will be used for new mate­rials and activities for chil­dren’s programmes that will be hosted by the Library in the hope of continuing to encourage a reading commu­nity among St. Maarteners.

Philipsburg Jubilee Library said Tuesday it was “hon­oured” by and “highly ap­preciative” of the efforts its sister Library under leader­ship of Joanna Simmons, her staff, and the Saban commu­nity had made in their sup­port in this time of need.

“The heart-warming sup­port of the Saban library encourages us in our contin­ued commitment toward the community of St. Maarten,” Philipsburg Jubilee Library stated.
