Libraries and Information Services (LIS) Month

November 1, 2019 to November 30, 2019

Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 837 s. 1991, the month of November of every year is Library and Information Services Month. This event is in recognition of the need to focus public awareness to the invaluable service that libraries and information centers render, i.e providing data and materials for lifelong knowledge and learning, for research and for leisure.

For 2019, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts-National Committee on Libraries and Information Services (NCCA-NCLIS), the National Library of the Philippines, and the Philippine Librarians Associations, Inc., will lead the celebration with the theme “Inclusive, Innovative, Interconnected” to highlight the important roles of libraries and information centers in building inclusive, innovative, and interconnected societies.
