Nineteen senior high school and college students of CARD-MRI Development Institute, (CMDI) visited The Aklatan: All Filipino Book Fair at SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 3 on November 21, 2019.
The activity is part of CMDI’s program in bringing their students to relevant activities that could help them enhance and develop their skills. According to CMDI Principal Rosemarie Catapang, “Book fairs can help our students in instilling good reading habits and create interest among them to pick up books from this wide array of book genre.”
The book fair was attended by different local publishing companies in the country. CARD MRI Publishing House was one of the exhibitors where it showed off its children’s publication entitled “Ang Magic Alkansya ni Carding”, the “Microfinance and Beyond” authored by CARD MRI Founder and Chairman Emeritus Dr. Jaime Aristotle B. Alip, and the “History of San Pablo: Reviewed, Rewritten, and Retold”.
According to Jewel Mae Vergara, one of the students from CMDI who attended the book fair, shared that she found new interests from the books she browsed that could motivate them as a person and as a student. CARD MRI Publishing House also gave them the chance to participate and learn more about our history and local destinations through educational games.
According to Cyrene Grace DC. Lubigan, Deputy Director for Publishing House, the institution was glad to showcase its publications to CMDI students and the public. “We are happy that through our books and simple games, we were able to educate them on how CARD MRI Publishing House contributes in community development,” she concluded.
CMDI students from Bay and Tagum campuses visited CARD MRI Publishing House’s booth during the Aklatan: All Filipino Book fair held November 20-21, 2019 at the SM Megatrade Hall 3, SM Megamall.
