The Department of Science and Technology–Lanao Del Norte (DOST-LDN) recently handed over six (6) units of STARBOOKS Digital Library to three schools situated in geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas or GIDA in the province.

STARBOOKS or the Science and Technology Academic and Research-Based Openly Operated KioskS, dubbed as the first Philippine S&T digital library, is a stand-alone information source designed to bring S&T information to the grassroots.

It aims to provide S&T-based educational and learning resources in various formats to geographically isolated schools and local government units throughout the country, as well as enhance the educational competence of students in beneficiary schools.

The Masibay Integrated School, Munai National High School, and Pelingkingan Integrated School received the STARBOOKS units during a ceremonial turnover at the Department of Education Division Office, Tubod, Lanao Del Norte.
