The 1st NCBA at the Rizal Library International Conference

PBBY was fortunate to be given a fifteen-minute presentation on the 1st National Children's Book Awards (NCBA)-Best Reads of 2010 at the 4th Rizal Library International Conference last 21 October 2010 in Ateneo de Manila. The topic of the conference was digital and virtual library services. But books remain viable, if not important, formats of information. There were four hundred participants, local and foreign librarians, who now have an awareness of the 1st NCBA. It was an opportunity to fully introduce the Best Reads to them as professionals who provide access to books and other formats of information.

A space was allotted for a poster session on the NCBA-Best Reads of 2010 at the lobby near the entrance hall of the conference venue. Participants were able to read the citations on the winning books. On display were sample books and a trophy borrowed from the Adarna House. Thanks to Dir. Lou David of the Rizal Library, Ms. Waldet Cueto, Conference Chair and Ms. Susan Pador for their support in this initiative of the PBBY and NBDB.
