National Library of the Philippines (NLP) is situated on a portion of Rizal Park (Luneta Park), the most popular destination in Ermita, Manila, facing T. M. Kalaw Street. Established in 1901, its lifetime has passed throughout different Philippine colonial period, and modern generation in which we are living right now.
In this development plan, the researchers would like to inquire further research purposes interview with the best contact person in charge inside National Library of the Philippines, relative information on the Internet, book references in libraries, and even some local citizensâ€™ word of mouth around to accomplish a worthwhile research on renovation.
In the end of this proposal, the researchers would like to provide a comfortable learning ambiance for visitors, upgrade most of the facilities to look more authentic, and enhance the creativity of facility design that can seem somehow distinct from other libraries while upholding the historical spirit within its structural design at the same time. Such outcome cannot only boost the number of tourists to visit and be willing to stay longer and then further recognize it as one of the iconic attractions within the country but also increase the inbound revenue sources on tourism to the economic benefits of its district.

The history of National Library may be dated from the opening of Museum-Library of the Philippines which was established at Interdencia in Intramuros during the late Spanish colonial period. After the library was moved to Gunao St. in Quiapo near the present site of Masjid Al-Dahab, the director then, Paterno, published the first issue of Bulletin of the Museum-Library of the Philippines. However, the Museum-Library of the Philippines was ended due to the beginning of American colonial period.
After the end of Philippine-American War, several American women organized the...
