Learning during a pandemic is very challenging. Times have changed, and education has stepped out from the four walls of the classrooms into the students' comfort zone using their gadgets. With the fast-changing situation from face-to-face to online classes amidst this trying situation, AUPA Junior High School & Senior High School Library continue to provide virtual services that cater to the needs of the students.
Sending textbooks and providing access to online resources and digitized print materials motivate and encourage learners to push through their studies. Through the Destiny Quest, a Library Web Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) database, all patrons from elementary to college can access materials like books, journals, magazines, or any other resource format. Borrowing books in a new normal is never the same because requesting library-printed materials is being done through a google form—then the digital format of books sent to students via email or messenger.
Another online database in the library is "Ebscohost," where students can search for electronic books, academic journals, and magazines; they can also download the pdf materials needed for their research or studies. So, despite these overwhelming and challenging consequences of the pandemic, students can still have an extraordinary time learning.
Books or e-books are indeed vital learning tools. Every student gets to learn from them as they answer daily tasks and activities given by the teachers. They provide vast knowledge and enrich the experience of the students to go beyond through their mind's eye. They boost someone's confidence to face challenges ahead and get through all of them.
For many, books are also essentials for they provide food for thought. And to some, books are considered their best friends because they are best companions, especially during lockdown when no one can go somewhere else. Books, whether tangible or digital, have a significant impact on one's life.
