     The long list of the Faculty Reader of the Month would not be complete without his name. Be inspired as he shares to us, through an interview, his insights on reading and how he got hooked on this.

mr. basmayor

 I always come to the library GS or HS to read my favorites: newspaper and magazines because they are always updated, after that I read books that I need to learn to support my intellectual thirst”

” I am interested to read books by authors who can predict situations of the future like Alvin Toffler, Bill Gates etc”

If I am not reading .. I watch National Geographic and Discovery, If I need to learn more of what I have watched then I go to the library and get this thing and read about it, “watch and read” is a useful method to get someone into reading”

Reader of the Month: Mateo Lorenzana


    Mateo Lorenzana, a grade 4 student is a regular customer of the GS LRC. He is always first on the line, during recess and lunch time.  One would often see Mateo seating on the couch where reference books, graphic novels and magazines are located. He is a reader on his own volition, with or without his classmates he is motivated to read, attitude which the personnel in GS LRC noticed and made him the featured Reader of the Month.
Mateo has an exceptional attitude towards reading. “I like reading..actually I love reading” this is how he simply describes his feelings about reading, simple but looking at him and hearing him saying these words, one would definitely agree that he genuinely loves reading and he is enjoying every moment with “words and pictures”.
