PLAI Congress 2018 Program - - CONTENT -

Greet­ings and con­grat­u­la­tions to the Philip­pine Li­brar­i­ans As­so­ci­a­tion, Inc. (PLAI) as you cel­e­brate this year’s Li­brary and In­for­ma­tion Ser­vices (LIS) Month.

We live in a time of com­mu­ni­ca­tion abun­dance, where in­for­ma­tion is free flow­ing and can eas­ily be ac­cessed. Given the wealth of in­for­ma­tion, the chal­lenge is to get the facts right, at the right time. I can­not em­pha­size more the im­por­tance of read­ing as it opens doors of pos­si­bil­i­ties. It is gate­way for greater knowl­edge, and we need more in­sti­tu­tions to pro­vide a con­ducive av­enue for Filipinos to be more en­gaged and ac­tive read­ers.

May this cel­e­bra­tion strengthen your com­mit­ment to en­hance your ef­forts in mak­ing in­for­ma­tion ac­ces­si­ble and fun. Let us work to­gether to es­tab­lish a cul­ture of read­ing amongst our Kababayans; with well-in­formed cit­i­zens, the pos­si­bil­i­ties are end­less.

Mabuhay kay­ong la­hat! Vice Pres­i­dent Repub­lic of the Philip­pines
