City Library

An article from Monday's Star Metro about the Kuala Lumpur City Library. I've yet to poke my nose round the door, but I love the architecture (which echoes the Moorish style of other buildings in the area) and the interior looks cheerful and welcoming.

The figures look good too: 74,000 walk-ins since the opening and some 6,000 adults registered as members since it opened in 2004. (Aiyoh, musn't ask how many stolen library books!)

I've never been to there but there's a museum to the left, from the front. A must go museum, if you love Malaysian history.

Those of you who wants to go, take the LRT and stop at the Masjid Jamek station. It's a 10 minutes walk from there. I haven't been there but called up the library to ask for directions. I hate driving into KL.

Haha, that was what I asked the tel operator. She just said walk in the direction of Dataran Merdeka.

Okay so I went there right, and they had Terry Pratchett in the Children's Library. Yay. So now I can't borrow it because I'm overage or something. Yeesh. Anyone with a grandchild I can borrow ? :D
