Sint Maarten Library encourages Patron to return Outstanding Books



PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten — The Sint Maarten Library is thrilled to introduce the first grace period of 2024, designed to  welcome back overdue and damaged books from our valued patrons, whether slightly  damaged or several months or years overdue, to any of the library’s locations during  regular operating hours. From Tuesday, April 2, 2024, until Tuesday, April 30, 2024, the  library urges all patrons, irrespective of the condition or duration of overdue items, to  return their outstanding materials. 

The library invites the public to visit three locations: the Philipsburg location, which is  open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, including the lunch period; and the branch locations in Cay  Hill and Belvedere, which are open from 2:30 pm to 6:00 pm. 

Our goal is to ensure that our collections remain accessible to everyone in our community.  By returning overdue or damaged books, patrons help ensure that these resources remain  available to all. 

During this amnesty period, there will be no questions asked, and no fines or penalties on  the overdue items.
