2009 Filipino Heritage Festival

Elias Angeles Street in Naga City, 1958

While most public libraries are preparing for the inventory of library books, checking the shelves and roofs, files and MRs etc.. this April, Raul S. Roco Library (and me) will spearhead the Exhibit and Lecture on April 30 in line with Naga City's hosting of the Opening Ceremonies of the 2009 Filipino Heritage Festival and .

Specifically, the program consists of a lecture of Prof. Jun De Leon ( Philippine Arts and Culture) and Mr. Joe Barrameda (Pe├▒afrancia History and Devotion) which follows after the formal opening of an exhibit of "Naga City Through the Years" and memorabilia of the 1st International Rondalla in 1993.

So there it is, again, arts activity in the library where public librarians can look at an example and which they can use in thier own community. But most of all, what Roco Library was working to serve as the information center in the community and its collection will be use for education and awareness of local culture. So if you see the photo above of Naga City, you will see more of it in April 30. And probably, will be thinking of having a quick visit to the Naga's public library.
