The Olongapo City Public Library (OCPL) headed by City Librarian Beth Daduya has launched a “Book Fair,” one of the activities lined-up in Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr.’s project named ‘Power of Information and Action’ with the support of First Lady and Zambales Vice-Governor Anne Marie Gordon in partnership with Capstone Institute of Business and the Arts and Sangguniang Kabataan Olongapo.

The OCPL project with the theme “Ang Batang Palabasa, Dalubhasa sa Kultura” will run from November 24-30, 2008.

Several Publishing Companies are taking part in the book fair like the Philippine Christian Bookstore (PCBS), Philippine Publishing Bookstore and Pandayan Bookshop. Books are also being sold at lower prices.

Highlights of the activity are the “Battle of the English Masters” which will be participated in by students and teachers from the different public and private schools in Olongapo, recognition of three best mini-libraries from the seventeen (17) barangays of the city, distribution of books for SK Mini-libraries and Videoke Challenge.

“Ginawa na namin itong “Battle of the English Masters last year at maganda ang naging resulta, nagulat kami sa ipinakitang galing ng pampublikong paaralan laban sa mga pribadong paaralan, kaya ngayong taon ay ipagpapatuloy namin ang labanan ng mga dalubhasa sa Ingles,” Daduya said.

There will also be a contest for those who can submit photos and written information about Olongapo City. The owner of the winning entries will receive a corresponding prize. All library materials will be turned-over to the City Government. Last day for submission of entries will be on December 15, 2008.
