Association of Laguna Librarians Forum on May 22, 2008

Association of Laguna Librarians

May 9, 2008


The Association of Laguna Librarians (ALL) is a non-stock, non-profit professional organization of librarians and library staff in the Province of Laguna. ALL is also a Provincial Chapter of the Philippine Librarians' Association, Inc. - Southern Tagalog Region Librarians Council (PLAI-STRLC).

As we recognize our key role in preparing the people for the demand of today’s information age, the Association has chosen Information Literacy (IL) as our main area of interest this year. To launch our year-long program, we are inviting you to join us in Lakad-Dunong: IL walk for a cause, which will be held on May 22, 2008, Thursday, 6:00am at the Baker Hall ground, UP Los Baños,College, Laguna.

Lakad-Dunong: IL walk for a cause is ALL’s kick-off event that targets to generate funds for its Alay-Dunong program in July 2008. This fun walk also serves as an awareness campaign to encourage our fellow library and information professionals and colleagues in the educational sector to further realize our responsibilities in promoting IL as a very vital survival skill.

On the same day, we will also have a Forum entitled “Basic IL for Teachers and Librarians” at 1:00 pm, at the Lecture Hall of the College of Veterinary Medicine, University of the Philippines Los Baños, with Ms. Mary Ann Ingua of the UPLB Main Library as the resource speaker.

Attached herewith is the program of activities and registration form, which we hope to receive on or before May 15, 2008. Registration fees are as follows:

Lakad-Dunong and IL Forum Php500 (inclusive of t-shirt, campus tour, lunch and snacks, raffle, certificates and handouts)

Lakad-Dunong only: Php300 (inclusive of t-shirt, snacks and lunch)

IL Forum only: Php: 200 (inclusive of snacks, certificates and handouts)

We look forward to your most generous response and we hope to see you there . Thank you.
