The public library in Cebu City is operational. We once checked it out on a weekend, and it was closed. But it’s open on weekdays. While the materials I was looking for were not found there, I noticed the library had many classic and contemporary books that were for borrowing. I think the borrowing process is complicated though — you need to fill up a form and have it signed by the barangay captain or councilor. But I guess that’s one way of proving you are a citizen of the city (?). Anyhow, I captured these flowers from the library. A more comprehensive entry on the library is here.
