Mayor Salvador G. Escalante, Jr. on Tuesday, March 15, led the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the New Cadiz City Public Library.
Mayor Escalante was joined by Vice Mayor Lilia O. Decolongon, the City Councilors and the Sangguniang Panlungsod staff during the event.

“Our city library will be very modern. I hope this building will pave the way to newer and more modern buildings in our city. As we continue to grow, as we continue to expand, your officials are always here, very much ready to assist for the fast development sang aton Siyudad,” Escalante said.
The following are among the features of the new City Library once it completed its construction: a modern and spacious design, free WiFi, online services, and more books and references to cater to the needs of students in the new normal learning.
Vice Mayor Decolongon also recognized the efforts of the Sangguniang Panlungsod staff, who, before the construction, exerted much effort in maintaining the old library. Assessments and studies were done by the office, headed by SP Secretary Rafael Bedrejo, which led to the building of the new City Library.
“This is by God’s grace. Once completed, this will be a symbol of legacy and proof of good governance that our city officials promised to the Cadiznons,” the Vice Mayor said.
