702 words - 3 pages

MANILA, Philippines – There are many ways for a country to preserve its history, culture, and tradition, and one of them is to store them in its library. In the Philippines, the library plays a significant part in the life of every Filipino, as there is one in every institution of learning, city and municipality, and government and private office.
The public, especially students, are encouraged to visit a library as here can be found a treasure trove of knowledge and information in books or microfilm, in manuscripts, periodicals, and other materials such as maps and musical recordings.
To focus on the vital role of the library in the life of every Filipino, the month of November was declared “Library and Information Services (LIS) Month” by Presidential Proclamation 837 in 1991. The Philippine Librarians Association Inc. (PLAI) is at the forefront of the celebrations of the 19th LIS Month this November, and the 76th year of National Book Week on November 24-30, in ...view middle of the document...

Through the years, the PLAI holds continuing training and education programs to keep librarians and the public abreast on recent acquisitions and publications of new books and manuscripts, both local and foreign. Established in 1923, the association, following two decades of considerable contributions to research and development, has earned for the profession recognition from the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) pursuant to Republic Act 6966 issued in 1990 and Republic Act 9246 issued in 2003.
We congratulate the National Library of the Philippines, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, and the Philippine Librarians Association, Inc., on the occasion of the 19th Library and Information Services Month and the 76th year of National Book Week. We wish them all the best and success in all their endeavors.
Vanilla Sky: A Thousand Miles Lyrics
[Originally by Vanessa Carlton]

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces pass
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making my way
Into the crowd

And I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder....

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
Oh you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

It's always times like these
When I think of you
And I wonder
If you ever
Think of me

'Cause everything's so wrong
And I don't belong
Living in your
Precious memories

And I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder....

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
Oh you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

Na Na Na Na
Don't want to let you know
Na Na Na Na
Drown in your memory
Na Na Na Na
Don't want to let this go
Na Na Na Na
No I don't....

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces pass
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making my way
Into the crowd

And I still need you
And I still miss you
And now I wonder....

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass us by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you...

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
If I could
Just hold you
Tonight
