Creation of Rizal Librarians Association

Last May 17, 2008, around 30 Rizal librarians and library staff attended an organizational meeting with Rev. Fr. Paul M. De Vera, Bro. Vidal E. Santos and PLAI-STRLC Chair Marcial R. Batiancila to discuss the possibility of organizing the Rizal Librarians Association and become the 6th Provincial Chapter Member of PLAI-STRLC.

The program started at 8am with the welcome remarks from Bro Vidal Santos followed by the presentation of PLAI-STRLC Chair Marcial R. Batiancila wherein he discussed a little of PLAI-STRLC historical accounts and some guidelines in creating the Provincial Chapter. It has been a dream of the 2008 set of STRLC officers to connect with Rizal librarians after the successful organization of CLASS, QLA, ALL, LAB, and MLA. After some clarifications and discussions, all present during the occasion agreed to organize the Rizal Librarians Association and elected its first set of officers.

Below is the power point presentation Mr. Batiancila:
