Hello. May I please request the following information regarding all public libraries in the Philippines still operating in 2022?

1. Complete Address

It is okay if some details or information will not be given. Nonetheless, I do hope to get at least some information on the "most popular/used" public libraries in the Philippines. Thank you!
