Book Mobile and Reading Program (BMRP) Book Loan

BMRP Book Loan is a transportable library and a guided reading program. It is anchored on De La Salle Lipa’s strategic direction of Embracing Our Shared Humanity and Championing Social Inclusion and Justice Initiatives specifically on increasing access to quality education through sharing best practices in teaching-learning with partners Lasallian, parochial, and public schools.
The program aims to share Lasallian education through a book loan, wherein various elementary book collections are shared with partner public school children. Likewise, developing the children's love and interest in reading and improve their reading skills, is also a focus of the program. To date, De La Salle Lipa has partnered with four (4) public elementary schools within the Lipa City, Batangas, Philippines.
