A public street library in Davao City gives opportunity to people to enjoy reading and learning.

The Lib of Positivity in Davao City seeks to develop a reading habit for children in the community.

Apart from that, Lorenzo Puentespina, the person in charge of the library, would also like to initiate the value of responsibility and honesty with the mechanics of the street library.

Based on the report from Davao Eagle Online, picture of a small shelf with books on a street that Lorenzo saw on google images a few years ago, was his inspiration in establishing the street library.

Respectively, Lorenzo and his mom began the said project. Today, his entire family helped him out with the operations of the library.

Lib of Positivity is located at at Bolcan St. Agdao, near Assumption Church.

Accordingly, the said library does not obtain a lot of books yet. Book donations are highly appreciated.

Citizens based from Manila can also bring their good reads to Puentespina Orchids, Cedar Hills Garden Center, 57 Mother Ignacia St., Barangay Paligsahan, Quezon City.

Spreading the love for reading is not only limited in these locations, you can always start your own street libraries in your areas.

Most importantly, this project received many positive feedback on their Facebook page. Also, various organizations showed their support not just donating but also spreading the awareness about the street library.
