For the first offering this month of November, Lopez Museum and Library invites you to venture beyond the visual arts collection, and rediscover the massive bibliographical resource spanning years of Philippine history.
“The Library Unveiled: Recent Discoveries from the Lopez Collection” brings together Dr. Milagros Guerrero, Ramon Villegas and Evita Sarenas as they present findings from the ongoing Appraisal Project this November 7, Saturday, 2 to 5 pm.
Poring through the vast materials housed in the library, the talk hopes to inspire continued interest in research and scholarship and in uncovering possibilities for more exciting projects and publications across disciplines.
It was 1960 when partriarch Eugenio Lopez Sr. inaugurated the then Lopez Memorial Museum. Through the years, the important segment of the Lopez Collection grew in number and in considerable relevance — books, antiquarian maps, Rizaliana and other archival materials — all shedding light on Philippine history and more importantly, the intellect, creativity and spirit of a great nation. With specialized services and the incomparable experience of the librarians, the institution strives for continued relevance of not just the Lopez Museum and Library, but of libraries in general. Moving forward, special lectures, activities and showcases will again be part of the public programming under the Library.
The Library Unveiled: Recent Discoveries from the Lopez Collection is brought to you in part by Gourmet Farms Inc. Registration is at Php 135 for adults and Php 115 for students and museum members.
