Davao City (15 November) -- In celebration of the Library and Information Services Month this November, The Municipal Officials here in Kapalong headed by Mayor Edgardo L. Timbol initiated a month-long library tour and story reading program for kinder pupils at the Kapalong Municipal Library.

Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 837 dated November 1991, the month of November is designated as Library and Information Services Month of which public libraries are mandated to observe. Part of the observance is the National Book Week slated on November 24-28, 2008 dubbed as "Ang Batang Palabasa Dalubhasa sa Kultura".

The Library Tour and Reading Program aims to ignite pre-schoolers' passion for reading.

"Young as they are, they should be stimulated to read books for their own good," Timbol said. The rest of the municipal officials will also have their part in the next days as scheduled.

Moreover, to cater students' research needs, the library will be opened every Saturday aside from its daily schedule with no noon breaks. The celebration will be culminated on November 28 with an awarding program for best kiddie readers and for frequent library users from elementary, secondary, and college institutions operating in the municipality.
