AKLATAN PARA SA KABATAAN: BRINGING OUR LIBRARY CLOSER TO THE YOUTH

The Midsayap Municipal Library and Information Center in partnership with the Sangguniang Kabataan Municipal Federation of Midsayap with support from the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office is bringing the public library and its services closer to the youth and children of Midsayap. The activity was launched last August 20, 2019 at the Municipal Plaza and was attended by kids from various children learning centers and day care centers within Midsayap. The Cotabato Provincial Library’s Book Mobile was also part of the launching activity.

The Aklatan Para Sa Kabataan was also held at Barangay Patindeguen in line with the celebration of the Patindeguen Kabataan Festival 2019. Kids from the Patindeguen Day Care Center enjoyed the different reading materials and learned valuable lessons from the story telling activity.
