Naga Library Lecture

As of this writing, I am relieved with the Library Lecture stuff. The occasion draw a positive response to continue advocating the importance of local history materials - the BIKOL references, as the core collection of all libraries in the region.

Thanks to all.. to my guests/lecturers - Mr. Conrad De Quiros, Director Prudenciana C. Cruz, Dr. Danny Gerona and Ms. Cristina Ranche.

I wish to thank also Ms. Gwen Galvez of Anvil Publishing House, the Secretariat - Sorsogon Provincial Librarian Luisa Sincua, Iriga City Librarian Flora Salvadora and Pasacao Municipal Librarian Liezel Evangelista. The Logistics - City Youth Librarian Jerome Perfecto, former library ojt Napthalie Brutas, Ruben Velasco and Roco Foundation Staff Alex Genove.

My classmate in UP - Melvin Chua and Mam Ampy Nieves who were facilitators and moderators during the program. The Naga City Government officials who were present - Vice Mayor Gabby Bordado Jr. Councilors Nathan Sergio, Bernadette Roco, John Bongat, former City Councilor now SP Secretary Joe Grageda. Local writers who is a Palanca winner Kristian Cordero, Mr Joe Barrameda and the Naga City Hall Choir.

Fellow partners in service: Cam. Norte Provincial Librarian Lorenia Tuazon and her staff, Armi Peña of LGU- San Jose, Cam. Sur, Albay Provincial Librarian Amy Bautista and her staff, the Ateneo De Naga University Librarian Edna San Buenaventura, and those people who have helped in this program.

Mayor Jess Robredo and Mrs. Sonia Roco who were unable to attend but were very supportive in the preparation.

My library staff who without them, the activity will not be successful. AND, to all of the participants in the first Raul S. Roco Library Lecture. Salamat po.

I will stay tuned and enjoined others in this similar advocacy. The next stop is the publication of the Library Lecture output-- the uniform bibliographic description of the Bikoliana Materials. Hopefully, it will be finished this year so I can give copies to the participant. To all participants, see you to the second library lecture in 2009. Again, Dios an Mabalos!
