Commissioner Dawn L. Henry, Esq. of the Department of Planning and Natural Resources is excited to announce that the Charles W. Turnbull Regional Library on St. Thomas and the Florence Williams Library on St. Croix will reopen on Monday, October 30th with new operational hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Services at the Turnbull Regional Library will be limited to the main-floor areas where the Public Computer Center, the Von Scholten Collection, and Public Services in the general circulation area are housed. The popular Children’s Room will also be open for our younger clientele.

Florence Williams Public Library in Christiansted is ready for patrons and is equipped with electricity and internet.

 Acting Director Arlene Pinney-Benjamin is requesting for library patrons to return all checked out books, regardless of the condition – even hurricane damaged books, to either the Turnbull or Williams Library.  Commissioner Henry urges the community to visit your library and borrow a good book during these times of recovery and fewer entertainment options.
