In the coun­try, K-12 was in­tro­duced in S.Y 2016-2017, with hopes that pioneer­ing grad­u­ates will have enough knowl­edge to ex­er­cise and ap­ply life­long learn­ing, specif­i­cally the in­for­ma­tion lit­er­acy taught in the 12-year cy­cle. This study aims to in­ves­ti­gate the as­so­ci­a­tion be­tween the en­gage­ment in li­brary ac­tiv­i­ties and in­for­ma­tion lit­er­acy skills of se­nior high school stu­dents and de­velop a mod­ule that can help en­hance their learn­ing skills. This study ex­plores the re­la­tion­ship be­tween en­gage­ment in li­brary ac­tiv­i­ties and in­for­ma­tion lit­er­acy skills of 408 se­nior high school stu­dents in a pri­vate in­sti­tu­tion in Ili­gan City, Philip­pines. De­scrip­tive cor­re­la­tion de­sign was used. Data were gath­ered us­ing ques­tion­naires and was an­a­lyzed us­ing de­scrip­tive and in­fer­en­tial statis­tics. Re­sults re­veal that the stu­dents were en­gaged in li­brary ac­tiv­i­ties and had a very good un­der­stand­ing of the in­for­ma­tion lit­er­acy con­cepts. There­fore, it is im­por­tant to in­ten­sify the col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­forts of the li­brar­i­ans and teach­ers in en­hanc­ing the in­for­ma­tion lit­er­acy skills of the stu­dents. Key­words: li­brary-re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties; in­for­ma­tion lit­er­acy skills; en­gage­ment; skills; learn­ing
