Dear Colleagues and Friends:

Greetings from PAARL!

Specifically, the tour aims to:

1. observe the latest technological progress and infrastructures in
selected Singapore libraries;

2. learn new trends and meaningful concepts of library services from
selected Singapore libraries;

3. foster professional and cultural exchange between Filipino and
Singaporean librarians;

4. establish a linkage among Singapore library associations for future
collaborative undertakings in the region.

For details and inquiries, please contact the undersigned or any member of the
