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.
