The OFI Library  is a Philippine study center with a collection of nearly 21,000 books, serials, images, and documents relating to Philippine history with some dating back to the 17th century.
The OFI Library produced mobile photo exhibits of Filipiniana imagery of various themes which are brought to different schools, universities, local museums, churches and other public venues in Manila as well as the provinces. Interested parties may request for these exhibits. Other exhibits featuring original library materials from the collections are held within the foundation premises.
The foundation also hosts conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and other interdisciplinary events. The seminar and conference rooms provide the venue for our educational and cultural programs. These rooms are also available for rent for cultural, socio-civic, as well as corporate activities.
