At the Library, the Governor was welcomed by Mrs. Irmin Hughes and Mrs. Alberts, Director of the Library. After the Governor was given a guided tour in the Library he discussed several issues with the Director of the Library and the president of the board of the Library.
At the Sint Maarten Museum, the Governor was welcomed by Mrs. Bosch, Director of the Museum. After a tour the Governor and Mrs. Bosch discussed about several cultural aspects of Sint Maarten and more specific of the Museum of Sint Maarten.
The governor applauded the work of both institutions particularly given the limited financial resources available to them. Both institutions have a critical role to play in the strengthening of St. Maarten's development and growth. Their growth and position are therefore vital in the creation of awareness of our heritage and in the preparation of future leaders.
