City Library Donates Books to Rural Schools
San Carlos City Library donated books to far flung schools- Prosperidad and Codcod Elementary Schools (ES) in celebration of its 62nd Public Library Day yesterday, March 9.
Prosperidad ES received 270 books of different kinds while Codcod ES also got 285. Said books consisted of novels (fiction), textbooks, encyclopedias and dictionaries. Magazines were also included and displayed in the school library.
Stella Fetiluna, Librarian III of San Carlos City Library said that for this year’s celebration they targeted schools in the rural areas for the book donation since students from the highlands don’t have much access to the city library because of the distance.
Rose Almaras, principal of Prosperidad Elementary School said that the books are a big help to struggling learners and those who have reading disabilities to enhance their skills. She added that aside from textbooks being used, the donated books also entertain students, making them enjoy reading.
Liezl Ogatis, officer-in-charge of Codcod Elementary School in behalf of their school principal Dee Marie Dela Victoria thanked the City Library for choosing their school as one of the recipients of said books since they also need reading materials for their pupils.
