INAUGURATION OF THE RIZAL READING ROOM

The Philippine Consulate General wishes to announce that it will be inaugurating its Rizal Reading Room on Wednesday, 22 June 2011 at four o’ clock in the afternoon in commemoration of the 150th Birth Anniversary of Philippine National Hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal.

The Reading Room will house a collection of books on Philippine history and culture, including selected works on Dr. Rizal and biographies of Philippine heroes and presidents.  The collection also includes Filipino cookbooks and English-Filipino dictionaries, and various CDs and DVDs on the Philippines.

As a tribute to Dr. Rizal, one of our country’s most notable scholars, and to the importance he attached to education, the Consulate General will open the Reading Room to the public, particularly to students on Guam who are interested to learn about Rizal and the Philippines and those who wish to find reference material on Filipino history and culture.
