By Chito Chavez

The Quezon City Public Library (QCPL) has forged an agreement with the Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI) in promoting reading to the children.

QCPL Children Section head, Alistair Troy Lacsama, said that both parties agreed to produce shows featuring QCPL’s puppets to be aired on the Knowledge Channel.

The puppets are the library’s most popular attractions that teach values not only to young library goers but also to school children all over Quezon City.

On the other hand, the Knowledge Channel is an educational media channel that promotes the development of basic education through audio-visual presentations.

The channel’s shows are anchored on government-prescribed curricula for pre-school to secondary schoolchildren as well as on the Alternative Learning System.

Rina Lopez-Bautista, KCFI president and executive director, said that the puppets will help Knowledge Channel connect to more children.

“We share the same advocacy with the Quezon City Public Library in promoting the culture of reading,” Lopez-Bautista said.

She revealed that it is the first time KCFI will work in partnership with a local government-owned library.
