Who else finds reading lists exciting? If you do start one for your learning community! In ours, we value the creation and curation of reading lists most especially of books and resources found in our library's collection.
Last week, as our school community prepared for the opening of classes, I presented the new library OPAC to the faculty. Powered by Koha and supported by Tulong Aklatan, the OPAC has a clean design making the navigation easier for users to search, locate and access information on sources. One of the features of the Koha-BALibOPAC is the "Your List" that allows readers to make one - and more! After creating an account, teachers explored the new OPAC and created reading lists.
Here is the line up of reading lists made public on our OPAC.

I was down with very bad diarrhea on Saturday last week I thought I would miss the book launch of Sulatan sa Panahon ng Pandemya (Gantala Press, 2022). It is a book project that took a year to complete. Edited by Merlinda Bobis, Joi Barrios LeBlanc and Mailin Paterno, it is a collection of letters by women and of women living through and surviving with grace and wonder during the pandemic.
So glad my tummy and this aging body cooperated.
Please go to the IG account of Gantala Press and have a look at this work of love.
Congratulations to Gantala Press, the editors and the women who opened and shared their stories. Thank you so much to ADHIKA, Inc. and Likhaan Creative Writing Foundation.
I am proud to be part of this book project at the same time, I am humbled to be among the roster of these wonder women, mga kababaihang Pilipina!
