We would like to thank the people behind the continued development of the DepEd Library Hubs. As we all know that library is a treasure-house of knowledge. The Schools in Sorsogon and the neighbouring towns will benefit from this Project.
DEPED LIBRARY HUB INFO: http://libraryhub.ning.com/
If every child is to be functionally literate, there must be an infrastructure that makes available reading materials to support this agenda. However, the problem besetting the public schools in the country is the prohibitive cost of setting up libraries.
Hence, in 2003, the Department of Education (DepED), through the office of the Undersecretary for Finance and Administration, launched the Library Hub Project as one of its innovative initiatives. This project aims to develop the love for and habit of reading among public school pupils and students through building a warehouse of supplementary reading materials called the Library Hub. The Hub is anchored on the principle that every child can develop desirable reading habits and skills through greater access to reading materials. Ultimately, it will create pervasive reading culture and environment in public schools. Under the Project, the Department is tapping the support and cooperation of both internal and external stakeholders.
A functional Library Hub in every schools division is a reservoir of reading materials envisioned to develop among pupils and students the love for and habit of reading.
The Library Hub equipped with adequate and varied quality supplementary reading materials for public elementary and secondary schools shall be established in all schools divisions nationwide.
In order to attain its vision and mission, at least one Library Hub shall be established in every schools division nationwide by 2010.
The Library Hub Project aims to:
- Provide greater access to reading materials to all public school pupils and students through Library Hubs
- Provide quality and appropriate books to public schools nationwide
- Develop the love for books and habit of reading
- Make every Filipino child a book lover
- Support the development of reading and comprehension skills of public school pupils and students
