Rate of Satisfaction of SPSPS Students regarding Library Books

I. Introduction
Education is the key to success. These words have been passed from generation to
generation to provide a constant reminder that each one of us must strive to be educated
in order to enjoy a successful and a meaningful life. (American Library Association:
2013). The process of being educated comprises several of steps. Ultimately, the end
result of those steps is accumulated knowledge. (Veronique Tadjo).
Accumulation of knowledge is like conducting a research study wherein the researcher
integrates the information he gathered from different resources (e.g. books, newspapers,
magazines, etc.). Without those resources, research is impossible and knowledge would
not be obtained. In other words, therefore, education will never be able to stand alone
without the aid of communication. Information must be disseminated and its jurisdiction
should be limitless. (Roscello, Frances and Patricia Webster: 2002).
Information came from furnished raw data originated from the ideas of different people.
Ideas should not be left idle. The true power of an idea will never be acknowledged if it
remains as an idea alone. It should be furnished and communicated for the public to
recognize and make use of it. By doing so, the quality of education would be uplifted.
(Why Care About Books: March 2005).
Books are the most common type of medium used by educators and are significant
contributors in uplifting the quality of education. (PEW: 2010). Hence, sufficient amount
of good books must be provided and maintained. (Krashen, Stephen: 2004). Relatively,
peoples lives would change and everybody would savor the flavor of a successful life.
