Leonor Dy-Liacco at Naga Library

"Her first love: Bicol culture" is an article I got from a writer named Teresa Aureus'  Interesting Bicolana. She narrate the life of Leonor Dy-Liacco who was an active advocate of Bicol culture.

Last September, Mayor John Bongat lead the blessing and inauguration of the special corner dedicated to Mrs. Leonor Dy-Liacco together with the family members, the Kabikolan society whom she organized, librarians, historians and other invited guest. It was very appropriate for Naga to paid tribute to Cha Mining, by designating a special section at the Naga Library.

For Naga Library, since its establishment, Bicolano writers deserve a special place. As an advocate, mover and lover of arts and culture, I thank the Dy-Liacco family for trusting the mementos of her mother to have it kept at the Naga Library so future Bicolanos will understand the Bicol writer and the culture. Surely, young people will be inspired to write, write, and write about the beauty of Bicol.

raul roco's special library

back in October of 2014 where i returned as an active public librarian, after i my mother's death. i refocus more (as in more) in library programs, with naga city shelf project which i will post later. since january, during weekends, i went to senator roco's special collection of books at lavista. 

the opportunity is amazing for i was able to see the books that made the late senator intellectually brilliant. books that he love to read, and the favorite authors he liked etc.. interesting to note, these collections spoke of a lot of him. and yes,as of this time, i am here.
