Join us as we celebrate a major milestone in the history of Philippine librarianship —the 50th FOUNDING ANNIVERSARY OF PAARL!

In honor of this momentous event, we cordially invite all PAARL officers, members, and friends who have served the Association for the past 50 years.

This event aims to be a remarkable gathering, shining a spotlight on PAARL’s history, contributions to the field, and the forging of a strategic framework for the Association’s 10-year goals.

Your presence and insights are of great importance, as we believe your contributions to the 2023 PAARL Planning Summit: 10-Year Development Plan 2024-2033 will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of Philippine academic libraries.

Additionally, following the Planning Summit, there will be a fellowship luncheon.
