PLAI Congress 2018 Program - - CONTENT -

It is in­deed with great honor and plea­sure that I send my warm­est con­grat­u­la­tions to the Philip­pine Li­brar­i­ans As­so­ci­a­tion, Inc. (PLAI), in part­ner­ship with the Na­tional Com­mis­sion for Cul­ture and the Arts (NCCA) through the Na­tional Com­mit­tee on Li­braries and In­for­ma­tion Ser­vices (NCLIS), and the Na­tional Li­brary of the Philip­pines (NLP), as you cel­e­brate Li­brary and In­for­ma­tion Ser­vices Month.

The theme Con­nected Ac­tions, Col­lec­tive Vi­sion: Li­braries Trans­form­ing So­ci­ety speaks of how li­braries are con­stantly be­ing trans­formed to help peo­ple im­prove their lives, thus con­tribut­ing to com­mu­nity devel­op­ment. The role and con­tri­bu­tion of li­braries in en­sur­ing in­formed and en­gaged com­mu­ni­ties is im­per­a­tive to our so­ci­ety, as it con­tin­ues to be the gate­way to knowl­edge and in­for­ma­tion that val­ues learn­ing, lit­er­acy, and ed­u­ca­tion. With its col­lec­tion of knowl­edge ac­cu­mu­lated by gen­er­a­tions, li­braries halp shape new ideas that drive cre­ativ­ity and in­no­va­tion for the mod­ern so­ci­ety.

To the or­ga­niz­ers, all the best as you sus­tain your wor­thy en­deavor. Maram­ing sala­mat at mabuhay! HON. HER­BERT M. BAUTISTA Mayor, Que­zon City
