Library offers new Media Lab courses


PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten — The Philipsburg Jubilee Library is proud to announce a series of exciting media technology workshops.  The intermediate level workshops will be offered to persons of all ages.

The Media Lab is a computer room in the library where over a thousand visitors have enjoyed multimedia technology workshops since its opening in April 2014. This month the Media Lab has a number of interesting courses lined up, such as Game Maker, Prezi and Programming with code.

In the Game Maker workshop participants play a memory game and make short movie clips. The media lab will also offer courses on how to work with Prezi, a new type of presentation tool which makes it possible to include movement and effects in a flashy presentation. This is a very useful presentation tool for students and professionals alike.

For those hoping to one day perhaps aspire to a career in IT or who are just interested in the basics of programming, the Media Lab offers a course where they will be introduced to programming in a way that makes programming fun.

The courses will take place in the weeks of May 18th and May 25th at 3 pm. Interested persons are invited to register for the courses online at or call the library at +1721-542 2970.
