as my job evolved from a traiditional to managerial, i have a chance of thinking about the plight of my fellow librarians. i've been involved in other organizations, yet, its ironic that the librarian per se, i am stranger to them.
alas, i give up my day to attend the librarian's meeting. the day turn-out to be something worthwhile.i left the meeting with photo shoots and goodbyes, with ate luds, the mariners librarian, and the librarians. the meeting has became a platform to expand my advocacy in librarianship and in building partnership.
you know, i am thinking of an occasional meeting this time. perhaps in july 9. see ya.

what does family history center offers? to anyone who are not familiar with genealogy, the center provides online index and database of families in the Philippines. it has collections of microfilm that contains personal records such as birth certificates, marriage and baptismal dated back in 1700s. to put it simply, the family history center in naga offers personal records with genealogical significance.
i hope other libraries will have access to this records, and if they have time, they can visit the local chapters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and maybe you will have a family history center soon in your community.

For anyone who are not familiar with the RSRYAA, it is a program where youth organizations submit a propose project which they will implement for six (6) months. The best organization that can successfully initiate an activity will be awarded with a cash prize of 50,000 and a trophy designed by the National Artist Salvador Bernal.
As of the moment, there are 7 youth groups have submitted a confirmation.
RSRYAA and its preparatory activities may be strange to the usual library works. But the efforts made have provided an avenue to showcase the significant role of the Bicolano youth in the nation building. And that Naga Library, being an institution of knowledge has committed itself to make its activities and services a more youth-oriented. I believe, this is one activities that is unique from other public libraries and the stories crop-up from the youth groups in dealing with the community problems is a an extraordinary lesson that came-out from a reader. Moreover, the solutions that they have adopted are lessons they learned from reading. And this is what made Naga Library as the home of Raul S. Roco Youth Achievement Award.

this impression that people is giving their trust to the public library of their precious collection is felt in naga library. first, the trust of the roco family to turned-over the memento of the late senator raul roco is one.
today, the same opportunity of giving the care of their personal collection has been given to us by the santos family. the printed collection of Bienvenido Santos and other memorabilia will now be accessed by the general public in march 14.
bienvenido santos is one of the best writers in Philippine literature. For unc graduates today, little knew of him being the executive vice president of the university. however, more students may have been aware of his writings such as the novels like the villa magdalena, the praying man and what the hell for you left your heart in san francisco.
my classmate vivien soriente of dlsu library told me that the memorabilia collection of Bienvenido Santos is now in their library. given the facilities and expertise, I was delighted to see the room dedicated to him.
i personally acknowledge the proponent of the project - sir Nathan, in putting a special section in the naga library. With the same guy in the government, i am hoping that the same opportunity for public libraries will be experience by my fellow librarians today.
