DepEd chief inagurates Library Hub in Pasig

Pasig City (3 October) -- Department of Education (DepEd) Secretary Jesli Lapus, together with Pasig City Mayor Vicente Eusebio, led inaguration rites of the latest Library Hub project at the Pasig-San Juan Schools Division Office in Pasig Elementary School yesterday afternoon.

For the Library Hub Pasig project, the department was able to train 150 teachers of Pasig City and San Juan on the different techniques on reading activities such as storytelling, read-aloud, and drop everything and read. The City Government of Pasig for their part funded the renovation of the Gabaldon Building, as well as the purchase of furniture and equipment.

The latest Library Hub project was supported by various non-government organizations and business groups, such as BG Consolidated Holdings Phils., AZ Direct Marketing, Reader's Digest Asis, and the different Rotary Club groups from Pasig, Pasig North, Pasig East, Pasig West, Pasig South, Pasig Sunrise, Metro Pasig, Ortigas Center, Ortigas East, Valle Verde and Marikina Central, all of whom donated cash and additional books to the Library Hub in Pasig.

Under the Library Hub Program, the department aims to build 35 hubs nationwide for this school year, and is seen to be the key to unlocking the challenge of literacy on a nationwide scale.

Library Hubs serve as wholesale libraries, which exclusively services elementary and secondary schools within their direct area of service. The hub also provides access to a multitude of storybooks, anywhere from 25,000 to 400,000 books, bundled by subject area, grade or year level for easy access. These bundles can be lent to schools for twenty-five calendar day periods, after which the schools must return the bundles for them to be eligible to borrow another bundle.

The Library Hub is a project in support of the Every Child A Reader Program of the department, which aims to improve the reading comprehension skills of pupils by providing suppplementary reading materials and teacher training. (DepEd) [top]
