Recipients: Around 25-30 persons manning the different libraries in the municipality and some teachers

Mayor Daisy Olivar and Marissa Acosta came to visit DLSU-Manila in November 2008 to pick-up some library donations. M. Acosta, who used to work in DLSU Library, introduced J. Ladlad to the very young mayor, Mayor Daisy. In the brief conversation, there was inter-change of some municipal concerns and dreams for the welfare of her constituents while the librarian’s work and activities were also shared to her. Mayor Daisy wishfully thought of offering her teacher and librarian constituents a lecture or similar activities that would hopefully inspire them in their work. J. Ladlad offered assistance through lectures and workshop together with her group of librarians as an outreach activity in her town of Santol. Mayor Daisy gratefully accepted the offer.
