Handa na kami para sa 2008!
UPD Library Staff wearing their Christmas smiles.



15 December 2006 – The Special Collections Room (UPDML) was transformed into a party hall as the UPD Library community came to celebrate Christmas together as one, big, happy family. Staff members from all over the Diliman library system participated in the annual Christmas program filled with games and raffle prizes.

The highlight of this year’s gathering was the coronation of the Mutya ng Library 2006. “Mutya” is an initiative spearheaded by the sub-committees on Ways and Means and Program to raise funds for the Christmas festivities lined up for the season. Select candidates from the UPD Libraries vied for the “much-coveted” title as their supporters raced votes for their bets. In the end, Ms. TESS SANTOS of the UPIS Library was crowned Mutya 2006, leading the ladies with the highest number of votes. Ms. LETTY RECALDE (SOLAIR Lib) was first runner-up, Ms. TESSIE CALUB (NCPAG Lib) was second, Mss. FIDELA ABREA (UPDML) and CORA RAS (UPILIS Lib) came in third and fourth, respectively.

A colorful lantern labored for by our talented staff members was put out still, despite the last-minute call off of the Lantern Parade by the Administration.

All cheers and snaps to the Christmas Party Committee 2006 for the job well-done! –CMAbrigo
