MANILA, Philippines – As they say, don't just throw away things that you think no longer benefit you, but can still be useful to others.

Netizens were delighted by a father from Valenzuela City after he donated the books in their home to a city library, as his children had already finished their studies and no longer needed them.

On the Facebook post of Valenzuela City Library, it can be seen a photo of the donor namely Vicente C. Alfonso Jr. from Barangay Karuhatan in Valenzuela City, along with old books that are still available for reading and can be of benefit to those who wish to read.

According to the interview with Vincent, he mentioned that his children have already finished their college studies, so he decided to just donate the books that are no longer being used and are merely on display in their house to the city library.

“Puro graduate na mga anak ko,” the father said, as stated in the caption.

“Naisipan kong i-donate itong mga books para mapakinabangan ng iba.”

The Valenzuela City Library expressed their gratitude to Vincent and encouraged all Valenzuela residents to support their library.

“Salamat po, Sir! Let's build the Library together!”

“𝑽𝒂𝒍𝒆𝒏𝒛𝒖𝒆𝒍𝒂 𝑪𝒊𝒕𝒚 𝑳𝒊𝒃𝒓𝒂𝒓𝒚 (𝑽𝒂𝒍𝑨𝑪𝑬) 𝒊𝒔 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒖𝒐𝒖𝒔𝒍𝒚 𝒂𝒄𝒄𝒆𝒑𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒅𝒐𝒏𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒔,” they stated.

Valenzuela City Library is accepting different kinds of books such as general works, references, and trade books (i.e. children’s books, young adult literature, travel and leisure, recipe books, atlas, dictionaries, etc.).

They would also love to have materials on timeless topics (i.e. history, literature, architecture, the arts, management, leadership, etc.).

“We are hoping that the books and other resources you will donate are in good condition. The library accepts both new and pre-loved books. The pages should be clean, and the binding must be intact,” the management stated.
