Reading is FUNdamental; Book week 2020 is coming up, with its theme “Anytime, anyplace and any Book

Book week is HERE again. This is our opportunity to collaborate with schools and once again motivate and promote reading among our youngsters and their parents. It’s also an opportunity to remind the public that your library is OPEN DAILY and offers online books and physical books at our location upstairs Adolphus Richardson Office on the Walter J.A. Nisbeth road #3, during the week from 9: 00 am to 5:00 pm and on Saturday from 10:00 am to 1:00pm

This year the focus will be on primary school students from the five different school types and the activities will be organized within the preventive measures of COVID19. First of all, we encourage all students to read books. Books are not only important for your educational development but also just FUN. The PJL has a whole selection of new books waiting for you; you can even borrow your digital books online.

For our existing members don’t miss this chance to renew your Philipsburg Jubilee Library’s membership and for prospective members to become a new member and enjoy the great selection of books that we offer both physical and digital. The upcoming mid-term break (October 5 -9) gives you ample time to visit your library.

The book week starts on Monday, October 19, 2020, with a soft opening online. During the week there will be online instruction on how to make a bookmarker yourself. A special request to the invited schools is that three students send in a drawing depicting the theme “Anytime, any place and any book” and interested students are encouraged to submit selfies that show him/her reading a book. The book week lasts until October 23, 2020, which does not mean that the reading stops on that date. 

Our theme is our way to motivate and encourage you to feel comfortable knowing that with the availability of digital platforms at Philipsburg Jubilee Library you can always explore options to read books and you can come and visit your library any time and read any book, be it hardcopy or digital because there is always a book for you at the library. 

The detailed book week program will be published within short. Just follow us on Facebook stmaarten.Pjlibrary or go to our website stmaartenlibrary.org. 5422970
