The constitutional changes have resulted in the Philipsburg Jubilee Library becoming the National Library of country St. Maarten. This new status has been laid down in the Integrated Cultural policy framework presented by the Cultural Policy Steering Committee of Saint Martin. This means the library will preserve all publications published in St. Maarten and safeguard them for new generations. Already we have a lot of unique reports, books and newspapers that can be found nowhere else. Digitization/Scanning of these materials is very important.

In the library, current newspapers can be read, with back issues available in digital format. From our storage room you may request those newspapers now out of print, going back to the 1970's. We have a documentation collection of clippings from these newspapers with information on a wide range of subjects relating to Sint Maarten. See an overview below.
