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.
