PJL Library launches Digital Reading Promotion for March | SOUALIGA NEWSDAY

SINT MAARTEN (PHILIPSBURG) – There is always something to do at the Philipsburg Jubilee Library (PJL), PJL said in a statement on Thursday. After the successful Black history observance month, the PJL launches its theme for the month of March: Digital reading.

On Thursday March 12 and 26, 2020, between 6.30 p.m. and 7.30 p.m. our toddlers will be surprised with e-book reading sessions. On both events, Mrs. Millicent de Weever will be reading children e-books for our young ones (2 to 5 years old).

Of course, there will also be a program for the general public: This program consists of three sessions and will commence with an introduction to e-reading. The major goals of this free, digital program are for participants to become aware of the e-book services the library offers and to promote reading through technological devices such as; smart phones, tablets, and computers.

The first session is scheduled for Wednesday March 11, 2020, there you will learn about ‘how the digital library works’. You will be preview to a peek behind the screens of the PJL to show you what it takes to choose an e-book.

The following, Wednesday, March 18, at the same time, the sessions continues with answers to your questions ‘How to select, manage, and read your e-book’. The final session will be held on Wednesday March 25, 2020 between 6.30 p.m. and 7.30 p.m. and the PJL will make use of this opportunity to launch the PJL e-book club.

This e-book club will be a new platform to advice on the selection of e-books and on the digital library in general, to review and discuss e-books and to select the e-book-of-the-month.

The aim of the PJL is to present these programs to facilitate its members and prospective members locally and abroad to be able to read an e-book anytime of the day and anywhere where you are. The only thing you need is a device and an internet connection.

Due to limited space, for both programs the PJL requests a registration (+1 (721) 542 2970 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
