The Abcede Memorial Library was named and dedicated to Euclides Almiranez Abcede who was a human rights lawyer who fought the Marcos dictatorship in 1970's to 1980's. He was recognized as "an outstanding legal luminary of the province" in a resolution of Quezon Provincial Legislature in 1981. He was appointed OIC Mayor of Lucena in 1986 and co-founded the Pasayahan sa Lucena(then called "Mardi gras sa Lucena"). He negotiated with the CPP-NPA the release of several military hostages and was a member of the government peace panel. He was a recipient of Quezon Medalya ng Karangalan in 2003.
The Library Center is located in a Private village in Lucena City, Quezon. Nearby are poor residents who are mostly migrants from all over the country and most of the women are housewives. Moreover, majority of the adults are elementary graduates and the average number of members in a household is around five to eight. As much as children in the area want to get higher education, elementary and secondary schools are far off from the sitio. Despite tuition fees to content with, poor families still confront the basic issues on transportation and food allowance of their children.
