Every November, the National Library of the Philippines (NLP) and the National Committee on Libraries and Information Services (NCLIS) of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) commemorate Library and Information Services (LIS) Month in accordance with Proclamation No. 837 series of 1991, which declares the entire month of November as LIS Month.

The UN 2030 Agenda's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a comprehensive list of the issues that politicians and other decision-makers are concerned about. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity, as well as to find a balance in the development trajectories of the economic, social, and environmental dimensions so that development is sustainable and no one is left behind.

For Year 2022, the theme for the 32nd commemoration is Mga Aklatan Bilang Kanlungan ng Karunungan: Tagapangalaga ng Kultura at Pamanang Lokal”,  which highlight the significant role of libraries in providing services and information in the promotion and preservation of Filipino culture and heritage.
