Journalism books at city library

September 20th, 2016 · No Comments

A section of the Cebu City Public Library will be devoted to journalism books and other journalism-related materials.

Called CJJ Books, the section will be the latest addition to the facilities of the library, located at the ground floor of Rizal Memorial Library & Museum building along Osmeña Blvd., Cebu City.

The book section complements two other projects initiated or supported by Cebu Citizens-Press Council (CCPC): the CJJ Gallery at Museo Sugbo along M.J. Cuenco Ave. and CJJ Magazine.

CJJ Books, as section of the library, will be part of the facility but its materials will be collected by CCPC, mainly from its members, journalists and the public. Aside from printed books and magazines, CJJ Books will also collect audio books and video films and documentaries related to media. CCPC owns CJJ Books materials but the city library manages their use.

Rosario Chua, city librarian, said the new section will add a lot more library patrons to its clientele. Not only the working press, Chua said, will find the materials useful but also mass-communication students and campus journalists and other sectors interested in media literacy.

Initially planned by CCPC to be located at U.P. Cebu College, CJJ Books site has been moved to the city library for easier access by its beneficiaries. The public library is in the city’s central district.

CCPC president Dr. Pureza Oñate said the project aims to fulfill CCPC’s mandate to enhance standards and values of present and future media practitioners.
