Bikol Public Librarians gathering

A MONTH AGO, Director Nani Cruz, inspected the development of the Naga Library HUB project. She is a DepEd consultant and was tasked to evaluate the programs and services of the Naga Library HUB under the Raul S. Roco Library supervision. On the same date, she took the opportunity to meet and made a roundtable discussion with public librarians in Camarines Sur. As a result, she made a suggestion of holding a gathering of public librarians where the issues and prospects for effective library service will be responded.

Responding to her challenge, I talked to provincial librarians in the region and explore the possibilities of holding a regional gathering. The series of meetings turned-out to be a series effort. In the end, they are convinced.

The gathering will be the first regional conference, and the theme is “Bikol libraries: building a cultural heritage through effective governance”. Likewise, the naga librarian along with provincial librarians of Albay, Sorsogon and Camarines Norte united to form the Bicol Association of Public Libraries.

As of the moment, this is the development, will keep you posted for the details, dates and venue of the conference.
