Library opens literacy help deskPOSTED: 01/29/16 5:14 PM
St. Maarten News – The Philipsburg Jubilee Library will open a literacy help desk tomorrow for people who need assistance with literacy and language problems. The helpdesk will be situated in the hall of the library and will assist people with filling out forms, understanding complex documents and other language problems. The help desk will also give out community information, such as how to reach health care and social workers, government services, and other social organizations and support groups.
The help desk is part of the SXM Reads campaign which was launched in May 2015 and is focused on promoting literacy and supporting people with low literacy skills. The library partners with UNESCO, Come Centre and Rotary Club St. Martin Sunrise in the SXM Reads platform.
The literacy help desk is the latest SXM Reads activity and will assist those people in the community who come across various obstacles in their daily lives that are due to literacy issues.
