Lopez Library Unveiled, as experienced by Dr. Ambeth Ocampo


“I have spent many happy hours reading and discovering tidbits in our history that I share in my newspaper column, in my classroom, and in public lectures. It has been a long and fruitful relationship–almost three decades–more than half my life… Without the Lopez Museum I would probably be selling memorial plans today. I would not be who I am.” – Dr. Ambeth R. Ocampo on the Lopez Library

It was 1960 when patriarch 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.
