PHILIPSBURG:— The Philipsburg Jubilee Library will be closed on Monday June 18th & Monday 25th, 2018, from 10 am to 5pm, to continue salvaging materials before the peak of Hurricane season and the possible departure of the library from its current building.
The impact of Irma in 2017, left the library in a devastating state. The Philipsburg Jubilee Library cannot withstand another hit from a passing hurricane and under current conditions of rain-fall and humidity the situation is causing the further deterioration of the materials.
Thus the regular inventory works are scheduled and may continue in order to store all materials as much as possible within the limited time as the hurricane season has commenced.
The library would like to apologize for the inconvenience this may cause to our loyal patrons. Patrons who have to return items scheduled for both days will be compensated as the system is programmed to automatically renew their materials.
However, as of Tuesday June 19th & Tuesday 26th, 2018 during opening hours 9am to 5pm we will continue our services.
