In its continued effort to promote a culture of reading and lifelong learning among the Filipino people, the NBDB initiates a series of training sessions and workshops in partnership with various government agencies, local government units, non-government organizations, and the private sector. Recent Booklatan sa Bayan programs were conducted in Currimao, Ilocos Norte and Taguig City. 

Each Booklatan session is made to suit the audience’s needs. Examples of topics are the K-12 curriculum, compiling teaching materials in the mother tongue, reading appreciation, library management, storytelling, contemporary literature, storytelling, creative writing, and many other book-related topics.

The NBDB is looking for teachers, librarians, writers, and other professionals who are willing to share their expertise with a wider audience. Those who are interested may get in touch with THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR at [email protected] Send us your CV with a cover letter that indicates what topics you would like to discuss and if you are willing to go to a Booklatan session outside of Metro Manila.
