Makati rolls out mobile library

PASIG CITY, (PIA) -- The City Government of Makati recently launched its mobile library to provide accessible learning materials and library services to  students in the community.

Makati City Mayor Abby Binay led the ceremonial launch of the Makati Mobile Library at Makati Elementary School.

The Makati Mobile Library is a testament to our commitment to providing quality education in the city. By making books and educational materials easily accessible, we hope to inspire a love for reading and learning,” Mayora Abby said.

Binay noted that the mobile library is part of the city’s efforts to hit the targets in proficiency levels for basic reading, writing, and arithmetic, which fell behind during the pandemic.

We want to make sure that all our students are equipped with the right basic knowledge before proceeding to the next grade level,” she added.

According to the local chief executive, each mobile library has reading materials, smart TVs, laptops, and various learning materials in English, Filipino, Social Studies, and Literature.

There are also teachers and volunteers stationed in the mobile library who are ready to provide assistance to the residents.

According to the city government, the mobile library will follow a rotating schedule in visiting different barangays in the city to ensure that everyone will be accommodated.

The program was an off-shoot and upgraded version of the Dyipni Maki that was launched during the pandemic.

Meanwhile, Makati City recently launched Project FEED, where students are given free nutritious and delicious snacks and drinks on school days.

The city also implements Project FREE, where students receive free school supplies, trendy school bags, uniforms, leather, rubber shoes, rain gear, tumblers, and dengue and hygiene kits. (Makati City/PIA-NCR)
