FIL-AM donated at least sixty (60) different kinds of interesting reading materials, audio and visual aids on Philippine culture, arts, history and children’s books. These materials were procured by Asst. Treas. Belle Limoge when she was in the Philippines, in behalf of the association, aside from some personal donation. Many thanks to the Philippine Department of Tourism, National Historical Institute, and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts chaired by Mr. Ambeth Ocampo.
There are books that show even the history and culture of specific groups like the Ilocanos, the Ifugaos, and others, not to mention some books on the Philippines’ World Heritage Sites, culinary and cultural landmarks. Value-oriented and bilingual (English and Filipino) books for children were also donated that depict the Philippine myths, legends, and anecdotes. CD’s that show what the 7,107 Philippine islands can offer and some Filipino musical classics are available. Please check them out at the Oceanside Public Library at 330 N. Coast Highway, Oceanside, CA 92054.
