Fr. Augustine Herbers, SVD

Memorial Library





Fr. Augustine Herbers, SVD, was the founder of the Divine Word College of Urdaneta.  As a lasting show of gratitude for his dedication to the school, the alumni in the Philippines and overseas have discussed establishing a library that will carry his name in his honor.  The DWCUAA based in the Philippines under the leadership of Adelaida Serafica-Deogracias, Class 1970, have made plans in building a two-story structure which will incorporate a library that will occupy the upper floor.  They have started fundraising and so far they have collected over P15,000.00.

The DWCUAA is seeking for assistance in filling the Fr. Augustine Herbers Memorial Library with newer books and magazines.  With the association’s help, Mrs. Teofima Pangonilo, the school librarian, has expressed her desire to replace the old edition of books being used and have become obsolete, with new ones.  This must be accomplished in order to comply with the requirements of the Commission of Higher Education. 

She has indicated that the books that are needed should cover the following areas of concern:  Computer, Psychology, Environmental/Physical Sciences, Principles of Education, and Educational Management. 

The school offers the following courses:  English, History, Psychology, Computer Science, Secretarial, Accountancy, and Management and Marketing.  Textbooks are needed to cover the aforementioned subjects.  Mrs. Pangonilo has requested for the Alumni’s assistance in procuring the following books to fulfill the requirements of the Department of Education.
