MANILA, Philippines — The Philippines has recently donated Filipino books to libraries in Malta as part of its efforts to strengthen cultural ties with the European country.

The Philippine embassy in Rome, which has jurisdiction over Malta, and the Sentro Rizal Rome branch donated the books to the Malta Libraries, the government entity managing all the public libraries of Malta including the country’s National Library and the Central Public Library.

The donation was part of the ongoing Multicultural Library Project of Malta Libraries at the Central Public Library in Floriana.

Meanwhile, early photographs of Filipinos are among those on display at the Louvre Abu Dhabi until July 13 this year, as part of the museum’s first photography exhibition. 

Entitled “Photographs 1842 - 1896:  An Early Album of the World, the exhibition includes more than 250 of the earliest photographs taken from across the world.

Among those on display are historic photographs from the Philippines, including works by Pedro Picon, the creator of one of the earliest photographs in the country.
