NAVAL, Biliran -- The regional and provincial offices of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) successfully launched the STARBOOKS on September 12-13 to three schools in the province.

The schools that received the Science and Technology Academic and Research-Based Openly Operated Kiosk System or STARBOOKS are Bunga Elementary School in Cabucgayan, Union Integrated School in Caibiran, and the Borac Elementary School in Naval, Biliran.

The STARBOOKS is the multi-awarded S&T library in a box developed by DOST-Science and Technology Information Institute.

The project is part of the continuous efforts of the DOST in promoting science, technology, and innovation (STI) in the countryside to increase awareness and appreciation of the people on the important role of STI in rural development.
