In support to the Philippine Librarians Association’s (PLAI) project “One Million and Counting . . .: Book Drive for Victims of Calamities” Philippine Librarians Association, Inc – Southern Tagalog Region Librarians Council (PLAI-STRLC) organized TAKBOOK, a fun run. The main objective of the activity is to generate books and other instructional materials to be given to libraries affected by calamities.

TAKBOOK, initially set on November 10, 2013 but was moved to November 17, 2013 due to typhoon Yolanda was simultaneously held in Batangas, Laguna and Quezon provinces as the kick-off activities of the different provincial chapters of PLAI-STRLC in celebration of the National Book Month and Library and Information Science Month.
