Green Spine Book Fair 2013

like the Libraries' FB pages
The Green Spine Book Fair, now on its second year, is an activity organized by De La Salle University Libraries and is envisioned as an annual major event to be held every August. This year’s Book Fair activity with the theme “The Libraries = S.P.A.C.E (Shaping Possibilities for Access, Collaboration, and Education)” is quite special since the main university library, now called The Learning Commons, is celebrating this year's Green Spine in its new home at the Henry Sy, Sr. Hall.

The Book Fair primarily aims to promote the culture of reading for better education and self-empowerment by bringing the books closer to the academic community. The Green Spine 2013 also endeavors to support the Turn 1 into a Million book drive project of the Libraries.

One of the lucky winners
of Like Us & Win
During the 3-day event, apart from great finds of books and other library materials, the Green Spine 2013 also highlighted activities to further promote the Libraries such as: Like Us and Win - passers-by/DLSU Library users/visitors were invited to like or follow The Libraries' social media pages (in Facebook and Twitter) and play to win different prizes; and Board Game Mania – a marketing campaign composed of different activities each day of the Fair to encourage playing of board games in The Learning Commons through game demonstrations amongst students/faculty/staff, like Taboo, FUNglish, Battleship, Game of the Generals, Last Words, etc.

Ms. Zazah Gagatiga

There were also book-signing and lectures during the Fair. Survive and Thrive: Marketing Ideas for Libraries was presented by Ms. Janice Penaflor; From Tablet to Tablet: a Symposium was organized by DLSU Publishing House; Ms. Milagros S. Ong, on the other hand, gave a book talk on Legal Research and Legal Citations in the Philippines and Ms. Zarah Gagatiga talked about Writing and Publishing Children’s Books. Both authors graciously signed copies of their books at the end of their lectures.

Accessing information today comes in many different ways, thanks to the ushering in of the digital era. Book fairs may not be too popular for some, but the culture of reading is cultivated by bringing books closer to the DLSU community. The Libraries are grateful to the community for the success of this activity. Until next year!

  4. That a lot of the outlying educational institutions this instructor pupil ration in too lower (5 instructional classes: 3 teachers). Merely launching widespread syllabus we can't assume consistent education development in all educational institutions. Their state Govt should emerged forwards to spend much more money towards education development. review grabmyessay.com is best one and really awesome custom essay writing service providers.
