UPV alumni donate steel shelves to the University Library

Mr. and Mrs. Zyrel and Jhoanna Rojo, in collaboration with other generous co-donors, made a significant contribution to the University of the Philippines Visayas University Library by donating steel shelves worth Php 204,750.00. 

The UPV University Library, through Ms. Analiza Galang-Linaugo, UPV University Librarian, received the seven steel shelves from various donors: 1.) Mr. Ramon O. Vista Jr. in memoriam Ramon A. Vista Sr.; 2.) Bertiz & De Asis families, UPHSI Class of 1987 & UPCN Class of 1994; 3.) Ms. Evelyn Patiño & family from Roxas City; 4.) Sis Helen Chiongson-Flowers & the UP SILAB Sisterhood; 5.) Mr. Noel Pablo Gallego, UPHSI Class of 1974 & UP SILAK Class of 1975-B; 6.) Ms. Cosette Vargas-Canilao; and 7.) Mr. and Mrs. Jhoanna and Zyrel Rojo and family, with the Rojo couple facilitating the purchase and delivery of the steel shelves.

As the University Library will transition to the new library building, the high-quality steel shelves will be very helpful in organizing the library collections. Its design will contribute to the aesthetic appeal of the library. These will provide a conducive environment for students, faculty members, and other clients who utilize the facility for academic and research purposes.

Linaugo, the library staff, and several students expressed their gratitude to the donors through a short “thank you” video. It is a significant milestone for the University Library as it will improve its services and support the University’s goal of achieving world-class competitiveness.

The Rojo couple, regular donors of the University Library, are both Library and Information Science graduates of UP. Mr. Zyrel was an alumnus of the University of the Philippines High School in Iloilo (UPHSI) Class of 1987. They have been donating books to the University Library since 2018. Linaugo’s resourcefulness made the steel shelves initiative possible. Linaugo approached them and they did not hesitate to extend help.
