Republic Act No. 6966 entitled “An Act Regulating the Practice of Librarianship and Prescribing the Qualifications of Librarians. Otherwise known as “The Philippine Librarianship Act.”

Section 18 of Republic Act No. 6966,
which is referred to as the grandfather clause, grants registration to applicants provided they meet the requirements specified in the law. It means that a provision in a new law or regulation exempts those already in or are part of the existing system which is being regulated. The law states that upon application and payment of the required fees, certification of registration as librarian shall be issued without the necessity of licensure examination to qualified applicants, who on the date of the approval of the act, are either of the following : a) librarian and supervising librarian eligibles and are holders of a bachelor’s degree ; b) first grade eligibles or their equivalent and are holders of a Bachelor’s Degree with at least eighteen (18) units in Library Science and at least five (5) years experience in librarianship, and c) first grade eligibles, or their equivalent, and are holders of a Master’s Degree in Library and/ or Information Science. The law further provided that this exception is not automatic. One must apply and they are given three (3) years from the organization of the Board for Librarians (BFL) within which to register and be included in the roster of professionals. Since the BFL was organized on November 8, 1991, three years thereafter is November 8, 1994, which was the period when application for exemption has lapsed or 6 expired. However, Res. No. 7, s. 1999 extended the period of application to allow registration of librarians under this section of the law. Many librarians availed of this provision and extension and to date there are approximately 1,586 librarians who were licensed without having to take the licensure examination. Under the present PRC administration, however, applications under this grandfather clause are no longer entertained, the reason being that all professionals should take examination in order to be licensed to add integrity and quality in the admission to the practice of any profession. In the library profession, the librarians in the private sector consider this section of the law as a controversial provision because it has adversely affected them. They claim that the law favors more the librarians in the government service because of the provision, which states that only applicants with first-grade civil service eligibility can apply for registration without examination. Most librarians in the private sector do not possess eligibility requirement, which is a necessary requirement for government employees. This is, therefore, seen by some as a sort of class legislation, which necessarily calls for either amendment or repeal.

Keep Reminding Yourself What You Always Dreamed To Be When You Were A Kid

Do you still remember what you always wanted to be when you were a child? Did it come true? or It didn't, yet?

That's the question I always ask randomly to the people I just met and I think it's cute that everyone seems to enjoy answering about.

Almost every kid had something in mind what they wanted to be when they grow up. I remember most of them wanted to be a doctor, a teacher, a nurse or an engineer but neither of them nor even me imagine to be a Librarian when I grew up.But I secretly loved and dreamed to be a performer on stage. I maybe don't have the confidence to tell it to everyone but my mom always knew dancing is something that excites me until now. She's the first person who believes in me and encourages me to join dance group organizations in my Schools. In grade school, I performed mostly cultural dances and aerobics. I wasn't able to fully enjoy dancing in Middle School but before I graduated that was my refresher, I performed at the very last part of High School till I dance my way to College and this time, I got interested to gymnastics.

Life is like a dance and there are times you get off on the wrong foot. I got too busy with my studies and a lot of things, so I choose to quit my passion for a while. Then finally set my foot to corporate world. I got six companies in 2 years. Not until my current employer approached me if I teach gymnastics for young kids.

I thought of never coming back to dancing.
But remember this, If you love something and start praying for these things, you may start your step seeking for it and it will find you. Of course I got afraid it won't come, and it will never find me.

I want to keep it short and simple for this one. How do I able to get back and dance?

I didn't stop praying....

Until time brings you back to it.
Praise God!

Until you met people who encourage and believe in you more than yourself, I think that's the time things gets easier and happier. - Me/You

Dear Parents, It's a good thing to check the School Library before enrolling your Child!

Dear Parents ,

Have you ever wonder why child's Tuition fee is fairly high?
Have you even try checking the listed items under the miscellaneous fees?
Have you check the School facilities and interview some of the staff working there?

Do you guarantee your child safety inside the School premise?


Although academic institutions have different areas where they're good at, But quite things for sure does matter in selecting the best School for your child ... such as the Library (Learning Spaces, Information Commons or Resource Centers, etc.) In fact, more than 5-10 percent of the student's tuition fee goes directly to this kind of department. Basically, Libraries are one of the major areas where Schools place so much budget on every semester or yearly. 

Why does it matter to check the Institution's Library?

Well to begin with, you don't want to give-away your money as if it was for a charity.
Schools falls under a business-oriented organization category , which makes Parents as their number one stakeholders. Though it doesn't mean , parents are expecting cash in return for investment (ROI) but rather the best way these Academic Institutions give back to those who trusted them is to provide quality Education for their children : Services, Safety, Solutions and Security (4S)

A library is a place where knowledge is being kept for safety. Reading materials such as references, history, circulations, journals and electronic materials are only some tools that your child can easily access information. Not just it, it is a place where your child gets to experience independent searching of information or what we call "Information Literacy". Libraries are part of your child's growth, for example they keep track of the books they have read and provide them level of reading materials as they progress. Libraries help them to navigate and search for the right information they need.

Nowadays, many academic institutions are investing for quality educational databases where students can ensure safe searching.

Parents may please check these 3 important areas of an effective Library :

1. Collections / must be updated / must be age-appropriate / must adhere to the School's vision and mission/ must increase child's moral values / must be diverse / must be easily-accessible

2. Learning Space / spacious / well lit / comfortable and safe furniture / air-conditioned / with access to internet / fire-exits /

3. Support  / trained librarians / holds library activities / Teachers guidance / extended service for research /
