The Philippine Librarians Association, Inc. – Western Visayas Regional Council (PLAI-WVRLC) received a donation of one box of children’s books from the CPU Kindergarten Library for their outreach program.
These books are complimentary copies provided to the library by the authors and vendors. The Province of Antique and Passi City will get the books as a gift from PLAI. Information literacy exercises and storytelling will both be part of the outreach efforts.
