A True Hero : The Librarian Who Couldn't Ask For More.

The Story of a True Hero 
"Nanay" Gavina Castro from the Philippines, lives in a small town in Lomboy Dagupan-Pangasinan, and worksin a Community Library, who is trying to maintain her small workplace which she calls the Barangay's Library of Information. 


The small town of Lomboy Dagupan-Pangasinan, Philippines.
(The exact area where they built the library used to be a docking place for the small boats of the fishermen, since fishing is one of the town's sources of living.)

The displayed books are donations that came from the Main City Public Library, which most of it looks really old and might not be enough to cater the needs of the people in the community but for a supermom like Nanay Gavinaeverything will be just fine. She never stops on planning how to improve her collections and even during  summer vacation, she manages to open the library for avid visitors especially to the young children of Lomboy.

by RcMunoz June 8,2018 Hope you enjoy reading! ***************
Summer ends too fast and School will be opening soon! Surely, I will miss so many things during vacation.
"I will miss staying late night in my friend's house" "I will miss being lazy and staying in bed all day" "I will miss the new adventures."
It's really hard to let go of Summer routines. But School is a place where actually new adventure begins...
Buying new clothes, new school supplies, new bag, new shoes,  Arranging your room for a more convenient space to learn, Meeting new People in School, Adding more savings from your allowance.  Finding a new Crush, or looking for a Best-Friend. 

In School, sometimes it's really hard to find someone who fits your standard to call them as your Best-Friend but it doesn't mean it can't be something like a place, a hobby, a pet, a food or a book.
There's actually lot of place in School where you can say 
"I belong here",

The primary goal of the library is to provide accessible and comfortable space for learning, research and personal welfare of its users.

Nowadays,  libraries are becoming more friendly when it comes to their services.  These includes : library cafes,  multimedia rooms, archives and museums, well-maintained comfort rooms, gardens, etc... /But still some Library users still feel the unsatisfactory with all the efforts.
