According to Ernie Baron " Knowledge is power" yes it is and it always be. To our school principal Lucresio Y. Oliver, visitor from DIWA publishing Company_____________ teachers, schoolmates, good morning. I love reading books and I’m collecting books at my house. I used to ask books from my titas and I read it at home it is a different feelings when you read. you feel the adventure, you create and visualize what is written on the book, it is more fun and I am learning. Books predate my ability to read and to write the language. Books have been my partner since I read “Sherlock Holmes” written by Arthur Conan Doyle. My mind blown when I read “Sherlock Holmes” It gives me knowledge and pleasure aside from that it well test our observation, memory, and deduction. When I read books, I feel like I am in my own world. A world where I can just forget everything that’s going on around me. Books can make me feels like I’m on a cloud, floating through the clouds, others make me feel like I’m on an adventure and books can make me feels like I am the protagonist . Books fired me up to pick a pencil and to write like never before, books made me step in, explore, and feed. Books that will wake us from imagination and curiosity. Library is the soul of any institution – Malaybalay City have their City library open for all , other big companies they give space and importance on having a collection of books for their employees, the most in every school because it is essential for the students. Our school do not have that capacious library that could cater the number of students just like libraries in universities and other big school. Though there is an easy access on internet which I tried, but the information are not that reliable unlike books maybe because it was not undergone through checking just like what is done on books before it will be released. Our school library needs more improvement like we seldom can access its services but we students know that through this collection of books that you are donating to Lantapan National High School we will be more equipped and it is a great advantage to us especially in our studies. It is of great help especially in the K-12 curriculum we are in now. We truly appreciate your support to us and the focus on improving our academic performance. Learning to love and appreciate reading is a center here in Lantapan National High School and having numerous books to lay into the hands of ours is a strategic way in developing our reading comprehension. Your willingness to help, you and other people have brought us closer to our goals and dreams. We believe that through reading books we acquire knowledge which is very important tool for our success. Once again, thank you Sir and good morning!!! .
