My warm­est greet­ings to the Philip­pine Li­brar­i­ans As­so­ci­a­tion, Inc. as it holds its

Na­tional Con­gress in con­junc­tion with the ob­ser­vance of the Na­tional Book Week and the

Li­brary and In­for­ma­tion Ser­vices Month.

Even at a time of rapid tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tions and the dig­i­ti­za­tion of in­for­ma­tion, phys­i­cal li­braries stand as en­dur­ing in­sti­tu­tions where peo­ple gather to in­ter­act, learn, and ex­plore to­gether. A li­brary is ul­ti­mately a sanc­tu­ary for those who seek knowl­edge and a repos­i­tory of a com­mu­nity’s his­tory, her­itage, and unique iden­tity.

For nearly a cen­tury, your or­ga­ni­za­tion has con­sis­tently up­held the im­por­tance of li­braries in na­tion-build­ing and con­tin­u­ing learn­ing. May these events re­sult in a greater ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the role of li­braries in ad­vanc­ing our so­ci­ety and in build­ing a much brighter fu­ture for gen­er­a­tions to come.

Con­grat­u­la­tions and I wish you all the best! Pres­i­dent Repub­lic of the Philip­pines
