naga librarian expectation!

December and 2007 are coming to a close, and a certain excitement about the year ahead is entering my blood like it does every year.

However, I am pretty sure 2008 and what it holds has something to do with it. Just sliding by, and really trying to appreciate the moments as I pass them.

A digital camera helps.....

the naga library

Hopefully, 2008 is my last year in UP. I have been working on my thesis. This is the reason why I am always busy. Thus, my time evolves from the Naga Library to my home and UP. And while doing my thesis, I will be visiting the different public libraries in the region.

I guess, some issues in my works have been presented. My thinking, it will be worthwhile to present the other public libraries in my region. The purpose of which is to let somebody see the situation of public libraries, what plans and projects, involvements, who are the public librarians, how are they coordinated with their respective local government units etc..

First, let me present the Naga Library, the Raul S. Roco Library. Some information about the Naga Library can be access at here are some photos:

Five years with a Bee


This generation is different, because we are all invaded by a bee.. yes, from a fastfood chain mascot Jollibee’s

When started working at the naga library in 2000, I see it as a better marketing strategy of promoting the children’s section. Ideally, we want to hook the children to read and appreciate library as early as young age. And the more we encourage them to read, we are better assured that as they grow, we have a better community. But practically, the main reason was that, once we attract the children in the library, we have actually attracted the whole family. Children will not go to the library alone and need company.

I MADE  an excellent partnership since 2003 with Jollibee and hopefully in the near future to create a strong partnership and come up with a long range plan of integrating the values of the company and the love of reading as promoted by the Naga Library.

So the next step is.. visit your jollibee store near you... NOW.
