PLAI-NCR members on parade.

Now on its 72nd year, the National Book Week (November 24-30) celebration commenced with a fun-walk/parade held at the Luneta area on November 24 at 7:30 in the morning. Participants included members of the different library associations and students and teachers of elementary and high schools in Metro Manila. The fun-walk/parade showcased popular children’s book characters as well as dances in the Philippines. These are depicted in very colorful costumes and floats with school children and high school students participating enthusiastically.

The parade was followed by a formal opening program held at the National Library Auditorium to usher in the weeklong celebration whose theme is “Bata, Bata… Halina’t Magbasa.” The theme highlights the PLAI, the National Library of the Philippines and the country’s library and information professionals’ commitment to inculcate among our young a lifetime habit of reading.
