 BANGKOK, December 17, 2013 – The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) Foundation honors and encourages philanthropic acts of individuals and organizations through its annual Social Recognition Project in seven areas, with this year's library development award from Prof. Khunying Manmas Chavalit, sponsored by SET, being granted to Juree Sangkapinyo, a public librarian in Songkla province and Nittaya Torprasitkul, teacher and librarian in Banndonsoong school, Kaosming district, Trat province for their outstanding work in developing libraries.

This award recognizes the persons selected by the Thai Library Association, and is a SET  corporate social responsibility project.

The SET realizes the importance of corporate social responsibility and has incorporated social responsibility as a major part of its vision.

Charamporn Jotikasthira, SET president and SET Foundation director and secretary, said:  “For over 60 years, the Thai Library Association has driven academic progress among librarians, and organized activities to inspire and support literacy of Thais, especially youth and the general public, which is the key foundation of human resource development. This will result in developing society and the country, in line with SET Foundation’s emphasizing the sustainable development of Thais and Thailand,” Charamporn added.    

Khunying Manmas Chavalit, Chaiman of the Thai Library Association, said that the association is proud and ready to continuously develop many kinds of libraries, and build professional librarians who sacrifice their own happiness to benefit society.
