D.R.Y. Libraries in Ormoc in Progress

October 24, 2018

Construction of the fourth and fifth domed libraries in the Philippines was recently completed and its thrilling to see it coming together!

D.R.Y. (Donated Reading for Youth) Libraries is a joint effort between National Book Store and A Hole in the Roof Foundation to rebuild or refurbish and restock school libraries in the areas hardest hit by super typhoon Haiyan (locally named Yolanda). Five two-dome libraries completed or under construction are located in Pawing Elementary School (Palo, Leyte), National Agricultural School (Leyte), Palanog Elementary School (Leyte), Valencia Elementary School (Ormoc, Leyte) and San Jose Elementary School (Ormoc, Leyte).

A Hole in the Roof Foundation founder Mitch Albom looks forward to visiting the new libraries on his next visit to the Tacloban area. Stay tuned for more updates!
