I am a high school teacher at Don Pedro National High School, Malasiqui, Pangasinan and it is my second year of teaching there. The school was established in 1966 but until now it has no library! Just this June I was assigned by the school principal to put up / organize a school library. Please help! The students need books. The students need a library. Please donate. Thanks, thanks, thanks!
