Samal Mayor Alex Acuzar, together with Father Josue Enero, led the inauguration and blessing of Samal library and museum last May 20. Located beside the Samal Municipal Building, the library and museum houses books, majority of which are donated by NGOs, as well as computer units that can cater to the research needs of the public. The building also showcases artifacts, paintings, and sculptures created by PeninsulArtes and other local artists.

Governor Joet Garcia attended the ceremony along with Bataan 1st District Board Member Atty. Tony Roman III, Provincial Tourism Office OIC Danica Tigas-Rodriguez, Samal Vice Mayor Ronnie Ortiguerra, Cultural Heritage Division Head Jayper Merla, representatives from DTI-Bataan and COMELEC-Bataan, and members of Sangguniang Bayan ng Samal.

Mayor Acuzar highlighted the importance of providing facilities like this that will help widen the public’s knowledge on arts and culture amidst the modern times and provide home not only for the creations of local artists but also to local history. The said library and museum is open to the public Mondays to Fridays from 8am to 5pm.
