November 2021 is the 31st LIS month: poster, theme, and activities

November 2021 is the 31st Library and Information Services Month in the Philippines. The annual event was officially launched online last September 6 on the official online pages of the National Library of the Philippines. For more information on this event, see their online page on the NLP website.

The annual Library and Information Services (LIS) month every November started in 1991 with Presidential Proclamation No. 837. The LIS month was designed for "public awareness to the invaluable service that libraries and information centers render."

The month-long activities, under the direction and auspices of the National Library of the Philippines (NLP) and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts - National Committee on Libraries and Information Services (NCCA-NCLIS), were designed to achieve the following objectives:

  • Improve the level of awareness and attitudes of the library community towards their significant roles in the UN 2030 Agenda and the SDGs.
  • Maximize the ability of the library and information sector in advocating equitable access to information and resilient, sustainable library communities.
  •  Link libraries and librarians worldwide to take action towards a sustainable, worth-living world through sharing/demonstration of international and local initiatives and/or practices.
