Proposed Ordinance on changing the name of the Iligan City Public Library to the Iligan City Public Library and Museum, on its First Public Hearing

(Monday, 13th day of March 2017)

 

ILIGAN CITY – – Last February 8, 2017 on the regular session of the Sangguniang Panlungsod, Councilor Ate Sol Bacsarpa passed a proposed ordinance on changing the name of Iligan City Public Library to the Iligan City Public Library and Museum.

Iligan City Public Library is one of the oldest structures that exist today in Iligan City.

A public library should be open to the public especially for the students and researchers for accessibility and/or references particularly in the Filipiniana section. One of its objectives is to lead in disseminating knowledge to the young Iliganons in showcasing the cultural and historical heritage; advance innovation, lifelong learning, and cultural, or scientific significance for the education of the public and to provide cultural, literary and educational activities, geared towards the general public as well as specific audiences, including teachers, students  and workers.

The ordinance will pave the way to the preservation and reconstruction of the library as well as an efficient, modernized and electronic material will be provided for the new public library and museum.

The public is optimistic for the renovation of the new Public Library and Museum in Iligan City. Another public hearing will be set for the purpose to solicit ideas, suggestions and recommendations to the public to make the ordinance possible and for the betterment of Iligan City.
