THE FILIPINO AMERICAN LIBRARY OUTREACHES TO SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY
LOS ANGELES (October 2008) – For the very first time, the largest Filipino library in the country will share Filipino children’s books to families in San Bernardino County. Through its Children’s Reading Program, the Filipino American Library (FAL) will have an event on Saturday, October 25 at 2:00-4:00pm at the James S. Thalman Chino Hills Branch Library (2003 Grand Ave., Chino Hills 91709). It is recommended for children ages 4-10. Please RSVP to email@example.com or 213-382-0488.
The children will listen to books dealing with relationships, and then discuss how to create positive relationships. Along with learning Tagalog words, they will make tissue paper flowers and simple kites. Admission is free and donations to FAL are accepted. Snacks and drinks will be provided. This event is co-sponsored by the San Bernardino County Library.
The FAL Children’s Reading Program promotes diversity and the love of reading among children and their families in Greater Los Angeles through the introduction of books and activities that promote different cultures and peoples, including Philippine culture. It is coordinated by Celeste B. Diaz, the FAL Children’s Librarian. Ms. Diaz has 10 years experience working as an elementary school teacher and school librarian. The program is funded by grants from Walmart and Citigroup Foundation.
Founded on October 13, 1985 by “Auntie Helen” Agcaoili Summers Brown, FAL is the first and largest Filipino library in the country with a collection of more than 6,000 titles. Its mission is to actively promote the history, culture, and professional achievements of Filipinos and Filipino Americans through the book collection, leadership development, and cultural programming, thereby contributing to the achievement of a culturally dynamic, multiethnic America.
Given that FAL primarily survives on individual donations and one major annual fundraiser, it relies on its many supporters to continue its programs and services throughout the year. If anyone would like to give a donation online, please feel free to visit www.filipinoamericanlibrary.org. Checks may also be mailed to 135 N. Park View St., Los Angeles, CA 90026 and made payable to “Filipino American Library”. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.
FAL is a division of the Filipino American Heritage Institute (Nonprofit Tax ID Number 95-4282571). It is open Mondays-Fridays 1:00-5:00pm and by appointment. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 213-382-0488.
