First Libros Festival of Filipinas Heritage Library

From November 24 to 26, everyone is invited to celebrate creative inspiration, the power of the imagination, and the magic of reading at the courtyard of the library.  The event will benefit the OurLibrary project of the Filipinas Heritage Library, which seeks to build community libraries or learning centers across the nation, and build a nation of readers.  For the inquisitive, the curious, the enthusiastic, and for those who want to expand their words and worlds, this is an event you should not miss.
