The Quezon City Public Library (QCPL) received commendation for taking the initiative and leading other public libraries in making improvements in the public library system in the country, as Quezon City hosts this year’s National Conference of Librarians, held from March 13-16 at the Novotel Manila Araneta Center.

Cabinet Secretary Leoncio Evasco Jr. urged local government units to support public libraries in their cities and towns and help provide funds to sustain them.
Prudencia C. Cruz, head of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts – National Committee on Libraries and Information Service (NCCA- NCLIS) praised the QCPL for its state-of- the-art facility and its efforts to further develop and enhance its services as a public library.

In his remarks at the culmination of the three-day event, Mayor Herbert M. Bautista stressed the need to maintain public libraries, not only as repository of books, but also as the “custodians of culture, knowledge and civilization”.

In February, the QCPL launched the Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) for theft detection and book tracking system, as well as its new website which presented its new Policies and Procedures Manual.

One of the most modern public libraries in the country, the QCPL was upgraded during Mayor Bautista’s administration. Now, it has more than 15,000 books in its main collection, including an Open Public Access Catalogue and e-book facility. It has computers for public use and learning, with reader services that contains reference section, periodicals, Filipiniana section, and local history and archives.

Aside from accommodating 700 to 1,000 clients daily in the main library, QCPL also has 18 satellite libraries located in various districts of the city, in addition to mobile libraries to augment its services.

QCPL has been hailed as one of the Outstanding Public Libraries by the National Library of the Philippines and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts in 2016. Last year, the QCPL was awarded the Most Innovative Public Library in the country for 21st Services and Spaces during the Conference for Librarians in Davao City.

The QCPL was also given the Gawad Kampeon ng Silid Aralan by the Association of
Libraries in the Public Sector (ALPS) in June 2017.
