USL hosts National Book Week Celebration for 3rd straight year

For the third time since the first hosting in 2015, the University Libraries has once again accommodated the conduct of a Regional Literary Joust in celebration  of the 83rd National Book Week with the theme “Libraries Take Action: Providing Access and Opportunity for All” on Sept. 4, 2017.

The different USL libraries were the venues for the contested events: the Elementary Library for the story-retelling contest, the High School Library for the Name-that-Leisure-Reading-Book contest, and the College Library for the essay writing and poster making contests.

Contestants and coaches from nine divisions as well as higher education institutions within the region came for the joust.

In the national level, the activity is spearheaded by the Philippine Librarians Association, Inc. (PLAI) in partnership with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts-National Committee on Library and Information Services (NCCA-NCLIS) and the National Library of the Philippines (NLP).

In Region 02, the celebration is led by the Department of Education (DepEd) Regional Office through the Office of the Curriculum Learning Management Division and the PLAI Cagayan Valley Region Librarians Council.
