Users of the library only have to present their identification cards. However, those who would like to bring home books and reference materials must be library members.
They have to present their Library Card, which entitles them to borrow six (6) books simultaneously for a week. The membership fee is P 40.00 for professionals, college, and high school students, and P 20.00 for elementary and children. The holder has the opportunity to borrow 6 books for a week.
