Governor John P. de Jongh, Jr. is for the sixth consecutive year encouraging young students across the territory to read as many books as they can over their summer vacations.
The sixth Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge Program will kick off on June 21, 2014 and continue through August 15, 2014. The initiative promotes literacy by encouraging children to read and helps them to discover and collect books that they can use to start their own personal libraries.
The Owl and The Seahorse is an independent book shop located at the Austin "Babe" Monsanto Marine Terminal (Crown Bay Center) and operated by PR executive and former Tourism Commissioner Pamela Richards. Cruise ship passengers and crew frequent the store in search of best sellers, newspapers, magazines, and more, including hats, luggage and purses for women.
The shop is in Building E (Suite E01) and within walking distance of several government offices, which makes it very convenient to island residents who are seeking popular books as well as local authors and historical publications. The location offers the convenience of plenty of free parking.
U.S. Virgin Islands, April 8 - The Department of Planning and Natural Resources Division of Libraries, Archives and Museums (DPNR DLAM) will observe National Library Week (April 13-19) throughout the territory April 14-16, 2014. This year's theme, "Lives Change @ Your Library", celebrates the transformative impact of the public library outreach services of the Regional Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped. Under the auspices of the Library of Congress' National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, the Regional Library delivers critical services and assistive devices to special needs patrons of all ages territory-wide. The Regional Library provides audiotaped books and cassettes free of charge and more recently the Library has transitioned to the digital age with the introduction of digital players and books under the Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) program and the BARD mobile app.
