Recoletos de Cavite Libraries Renamed
Topic: STV Libraries

On August 31, 2007, the school board unanimously approved the proposal of the Library on the renaming of the Recoletos de Cavite Libraries to St. Thomas of Villanova Libraries.  The renaming of the Library is a fitting tribute to St. Thomas for his promotion of studies and missions in the Order of Saint Augustine, and for his love and care for the poor.  

The launching of the renaming of the Libraries took place on November 26, 2007 during the opening ceremonies of the 2007 Library and Information Services Month and the 73rd National Book Week celebration.  The ceremony started with the unveiling and blessing of the statue of the saint installed at the Main Library and was then followed by a “Forum on the Life and Spirituality of St. Thomas of Villanova” with Rev. Fr. Alden V. Alipin, OAR (VP-Academics) as the resource speaker.   Present during the inauguration were the following— Rev. Fr. Emilio P. Jaruda, OAR (College President) and several school authorities, librarians and faculty.


It is praiseworthy and noteworthy that the Library was renamed in honor of St. Thomas meriting his contribution to the Order of Saint Augustine and recognizing his life of virtue and for his service to God and the Church.
