Selling Free Education on Streets: Things Money Can’t Buy That Sells More Than Once It Meets the Eye




Hindi Fishball, Ice-Cream, Balut o Tokneneng , kung hindi mga libro ang nilalako ng isang grupo ng mga Libraryan bilang isa sa mga proyekto ng Pambansang Aklatan ng Pilipinas

Ang proyektong “Brigada Pagbasa” ay naglalayong mag bigay ng panandaliang pahinga sa matinding epekto ng teknolohiya sa ating mga mata. Nagsisilbi rin itong inspirasyon sa mga bata at matatandang nasa kalsada ng Maynila sa pamamagitan ng pagpapamalas ng maikling programa sa pangunguna ni Ms. Melanie Ramires , Children’s Section Libraryan at ibang mga libraryan na galing sa Pambansang Aklatan ng Pilipinas.







Hindi naging madali ang pagsulong ng proyektong ito dahil sa mausok, matinding-init at minsang pagbuhos ng ulan sa mga lugar kung saan ginaganap ang mga programang katulad ng Pagkukuwento, Sabayang Pagbasa, Pagsasadula, Papets, Paglikha ng larawan at  Pagkukulay.


Naging malaking inspirasyon ng programang ito ang istorya ng tinaguriang bayani ng henerasyon sa larangan ng Edukasyon, “2009 CNN Hero of the Year, Efren Penaflorida”. Tumatak ang istorya ni Efren na nakaranas ng hindi sapat na atensyon sa Edukasyon at pagmamalupit sa kamay ng masasamang grupong pinakisamahan niya noon. Gusto man niyang gumanti sa parehas na paraan ay hindi ito nagpatalo sa galit at binaliktad ang sitwasyong kinalalagyan niya.



Ang naranasang pait ng kahapon ang nagbigay sa kanya ng lakas upang makatulong sa mga batang pinagkaitan ng edukasyon at pinagmalupitan ng lipunan. Ang magbigay ng libreng Edukasyon sa Kalye sa mga bata at matatanda. Walang kinikitang ni-iisang sentimo ang pagtulong na yon’ ang ginawa ni Efren ngunit sa kabila ng lahat ito ang naging pambayad niya na utang na loob sa mga tumulong sa kanya at pagsusumikap niyang makatapos.

Any Guess? How Many Registered Librarians in the Philippines


I took and passed the examination around year 2015, and my PRC Registration NO. tells me I'm around  7300, so I guess since 4 years have gone, and if 500 newly registered librarians pass every year, : 7300 + 500 (2016) + 500 (2017) + 500 (2018) + 500 (2019) = 
There would be a around 9,300 registered Librarians are in the Philippines.

Using the Library Effectively For College Students






 1. Be familiar with the Location(s) of the Library(ies)                  (i.e Main Library, College Libraries, Satellite Libraries) and Library       Sections (i.e Circulation, Reference, Filipiniana , Archives, Information Commons, Computer Room, Reading Areas, Multimedia Rooms/Discussion Rooms). Keep Track of the Library News and Events.

2. Identify the Library Services they Offer. College/University Libraries can different from one other. Some offers extended services such as research    assistance , interlibrary-loans (receive or borrow documents from other neighboring libraries) and access to research databases.

3. Learn the Basic Library Searching.
Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) is a database where you can access all the list of the library materials and its location. Furthermore, you may ask the    Reference           Librarian or Circulation Librarian for borrowing matter.

4. Update your Library Account Information
It’s your responsible to take care your personal belongings like your library account. There are people who will use your identity to check out the books using your account. If this happens to you, report it immediately!


5. Ask What’s New
 Libraries transform because of the rapid advancement in technology but the Goal never changes and never stops

Do not forget to Smile back,  say “Salamat” or “ I appreciate your help”,  
It makes our Day. Happy to Serve!
