BUTUAN CITY, June 11 (PIA) - In response to requests of students and teachers, the Butuan City Library announced that it will provide services even on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

According to Ms. Grace Montilla, chief of the Butuan City Library, students, teachers and even researchers may now have the opportunity to use the library facilities even during Saturdays.

“There are some instances where students, especially in the graduate school have only the time to use the library during Saturdays because they are working during weekdays. Thus, we really have to understand situations like these,” Montilla said.
