Enid M. Baa Library Closes, Transitions to Turnbull Library

The Division of Libraries, Archives and Museums’ Enid M. Baa Public Library will close on Dec. 18 in preparation for the transition of library staff and collections to the new Charles Wesley Turnbull Regional Library located in Tutu Park Mall, according to a press release issued Tuesday by the V.I. Department of Planning and Natural Resources.
The first phase of mobilization for the move is well underway and scheduled for completion by the end of December. The public is advised that all phone services and computerized access to public library records will be suspended temporarily while services are transferred and connections installed at the new facility. Some minor service interruptions at allied public library locations on St. Croix may also occur during the move.
All library materials for the Enid Baa Library and the St. Thomas bookmobile should be returned to the bookmobile. No fees or fines will be assessed between Dec. 18, 2012 and Jan. 22, 2013. The bookmobile will be stationed at the new site in Estate Tutu to provide library service to patrons during the transition phase, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday through Friday.
The Charles Wesley Turnbull Regional Library is located at the northern end of Tutu Park Mall. Public access to the library, as of Jan. 2, is through the gated driveway entrance at the northeast corner of the Plaza Extra parking lot.
