Filipiniana Collection at Pinole Library

Dear Friends, we have an opportunity to rebuild the Pinole Library Filipiniana Collection. The collection consists of bilingual childrens books in Tagalog and English, books on Philippine history, arts and culture, but we also have an opportunity to include Filipino-American authors. Please take the survey and include books that you recommend that will help inform Filipino American identity, history and culture. Please help me expand our reading list. Salamat! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FHWGLYZ
