The Ortigas Foundation Library is very fortunate in that it will soon be lent an entire set of the National Geographic Society magazine collected by the Foundation’s chairman Rafael Ortigas Jr.. Atty. Rafa has been a life long collector of the magazine since his boyhood days in the 1950s when his father subscribed for their family. 

The Ortigas Foundation opened its new Library and Philippine Study Center on a handsomely renovated floor of the old Ortigas Building in Pasig. 2006 marked the seventy-fifth anniversary of the founding of Ortigas and Company and the Ortigas family members and their corporate partners felt it was important to give back something substantial to the community.
