Rapu-Rapu Mining equips IT room of Sorsogon Library Hub

RAPU-RAPU Minerals, Inc.(RRMI), the first operating polymetallic mine in the Philippines and located in Albay Gulf across Sorsogon, recently turned over ICT equipment to complete the computer room of the newly built library hub of the province. The initiative is one of the mining project’s continuing efforts to support education and youth development in various local communities as a partner of LGUs and government agencies.

The library hub program, a brainchild of the the Department of Education (DepED), through the office of the Undersecretary for Finance and Administration, was launched to develop desirable reading habits and skills among children by providing them with a reservoir of supplementary reading materials. The program aims to establish at least one library hub in every DepED schools division nationwide by 2010, with the support and cooperation of both internal and external stakeholders.

With Sorsogon entitled to five library hubs, the newly inaugurated hub, located in the provincial capitol compound, is the only one in the province to date and one of eight in Region V. The region’s other library hubs are located in Camarines Sur (Pili, Tigaon, and Libmanan), Catanduanes, Masbate City, Naga City, and Tabaco City.

The inauguration of the Sorsogon Library Hub was led by Governor Sally A. Lee and DepEd Assistant Secretary for Programs and Projects Dr. Teresita G. Inciong. In attendance were DepEd Region V Director Celedonio L. Layon, Jr.; Region V Mines and Geosciences Bureau OIC for Mining Safety and Environment Buenaventura Dayao; Division of Sorsogon DepEd Supt. Dr. Marilyn D. Dimaano; Bulan Mayor Ellen de Castro; Donsol Vice-Mayor Emiterio Belmonte, Jr.;  RRMI VP for Public Relations and Corporate Affairs Cecille Calleja; and  Monsignor Gerry del Prado.

The two-story, P4 million Sorsogon library hub was constructed with joint DepEd and provincial government funding in an example of inter-government partnership.  RRMI’s contribution consists of five brand-new computer sets with state-of-the-art LG monitors, UPS and AVR equipment, one LCD projector, computer tables and chairs. The ICT resources are housed in a section of the library hub called the “Rapu-Rapu Minerals, Inc. Computer Room,” which will include a display of 12 rock samples and other informative materials on mining. The ICT room will serve as the data base and center of the library hub.

Ms. Calleja thanked the provincial government and DepEd for affording the RRMI a role in serving the educational needs of children in Sorsogon. RRMI also runs a continuing educational scholarship program benefiting 81 high school students in Sorsogon City and the province. In addition, RRMI also continuously implements initiatives to help improve the quality of life of residents in the region, including providing funding for relocation sites and emergency response aid during calamities such as typhoons and volcanic eruptions.

RRMI is part LG International, Korea Resources of the South Korean government and Malaysian Smelting Company, Berhad.

    I hope this will really help the Library be more equipped of updated infos needed by the researcher… better if the Library will appear more accessible even to ordinary people… There are so many of us who want to drop by in a library atleast for letting some spare time pass productively but very confined libraries makes us feel not welcome to go in…
