On its fifth year, Naga Library has become the permanent Secretariat of the Raul S. Roco Youth Achievement Awards. What is RSRYAA?

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.
