Turnbull Library

Library Assistant Dianne Fishers is ready to welcome readers again at the Charles Turnbull Regional Library on St. Thomas. The library had been closed because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Two of the territory’s libraries have reopened after being shuttered due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, according to the V.I. Department of Planning and Natural Resources.

DPNR spokesman Jamal Nielsen issued a news release Tuesday, saying that Turnbull Regional Library on St. Thomas and the Regional Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped on St. Croix are now open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Fort Frederik and Fort Christian National Historic Landmarks are open for self-guided tours only from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Due to COVID-19, and for safety of staff and the public, social distancing and a facial covering are required.

The Florence Williams Library on St. Croix is closed, according to the DPNR release.

“Library materials from Florence A. Williams Public Library in Christiansted can be returned at the Regional Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped in the Vitraco Mall in Golden Rock,” according to the news release.

Nielsen did not respond to questions about why Florence Williams library has not reopened.
