You will also receive members-only emails with advance notice of exhibitions, programs, events and special offers. What’s more, you may check out two books at a time for 10 days from the library’s lending section.
Lopez Museum executive director Cedie Lopez Vargas says the lending service is a way to allow users of the library to take home and savor books that would otherwise be too expensive to purchase. “You could also take out books for your children or for your spouse,” she suggests.
Additionally, the library is also accepting book donations for the lending service. While Filipiniana would be welcome, Vargas says prospective donors should be guided by the following questions: What books would you like to share? What do you think people would like to read about? What would you like to see?
The Lopez Museum membership offer is open to individuals who live or work in the Philippines. For more info, call Tina Modrigo or Paolo Arago at 631-2417 or 631-2425.
