Senior Citizens pay a visit to the Library

On Friday, August 15 residents of the St. Maarten’s Home visited the Philipsburg Jubilee Library.  

The objective of the visit was to provide seniors with more contact with their community and provide stimulation to the clients, mentally and physically thereby promoting a better quality of life. Mariane Pantophlet, Activity Coordinator of the White and Yellow Cross, along with her assistant, Yoainna de Lain, were instrumental in making the senior citizens visit possible.

During their visit they were given a tour of the entire library by staffers, Morena Ignacio and Melackia Spencer. Seniors were also briefed on the activities being done at the library and given a hands-on, short introduction on using the library’s computers.

For many of the visiting seniors, this was their first trip to the library and they expressed interest in coming again. They specifically expressed a desire to learn more about using computers and browsing the internet

The library thanks the White and Yellow Cross Foundation for choosing to bring their clients to the library and encourages them to come again.
