Councilor Dr. Candice Tupas proposes Iloilo City Online Library

In a Facebook post, Iloilo City Councilor Dr. Candice "Misis Lex" Tupas announced that she is proposing an ordinance to make the Iloilo City Public Library (ICPL) more accessible to the Ilonggo public through online means. She wants the library to support students and researchers during the pandemic. 

In a Sangguniang Panglungsod regular session last September 15, she proposed an ordinance entitled "Institutionalizing Online Library for the City of Iloilo." The city council approved of it and it will be referred to the Committees on Education and Information Technology for further study and recommendation.

According to Councilor Tupas, "It is very timely to establish the Iloilo City Online Library especially during this pandemic so that Ilonggos, especially students can still enjoy reading books and access other academic materials online."

The Iloilo City Public Library continues serving the Ilonggos even in the midst of a pandemic. They are still continuing their online storytelling program through their Facebook page and recently, they have also distributed learning materials and modules.
