Library Open Day Reception a success
The evening started off with a cocktail reception, followed by a presentation by Library Director, Monique Alberts in which the library’s goals and activities for 2014 was presented, to over thirty current and potential financial partners, funding agencies, service clubs and members of the business community.“In recent years, the Philipsburg Jubilee Library has organized events at the library but without first presenting those plans to the business community and funding agencies at the start of the year. These financial groups are important to the success and longevity of our projects. It is with this in mind, that this event was organized to present our plans for 2014 to our valued financial supporters, as early possible, in order for us to garner their financial support”, stated Morenika Arrindell, Library Public Relations & Activity Manager.

During the presentation, Alberts outlined a few of the activities and projects that the library would like to carry out for the New Year with the financial assistance of the business community. Alberts discussed phase two of the “Library Goes Green” project, which would allow the library to switch completely to LED Lights and also install inverter air conditioners for the entire building; continuation of the annual “Baby & Toddler Week”, a reading workshop for parents and their babies or toddlers; the annual Summer Musical for teenagers; Children’s Book Week 2014; the need to finalize the new shelves and furniture project; renovation of the children’s corner; new furniture for the Baby & Toddler room; construction of a ramp and special parking space for senior citizens, and the installation of the Digikidz-medialab. After the presentation, visiting guests took a tour of the library’s facility, including the Baby & Toddler Room, Youth and Adult Sections. Library Director Alberts thanked all invited guests for attending and encouraged them to support their library.
