TTDI Community Library

I had promised to take Ian to the community library in TTDI right after his exam was over. We went there a couple of times before moving here but never got around to joining the membership. Last Friday, right after picking him up from the kindy, we went straight to the library and both of us applied for membership.

Adults (13 and above) RM6
Sr Citizens (55 and above) RM6

All members are allowed to borrow 3 books and 1 CD at any one time and shall be returned in 3 weeks and renewal of books can be done at no charge by calling them as long as the original returning dates have not lapsed.

The library building and its compound not only house a library but a community hall, a tennis court and a cafeteria. The overall design of the main entrance of the building with exposure of enlarged glass windows and doors allows natural sunlight to array inside and the reading areas are adequately lit up. Perhaps it was a weekday, it's really quiet with virtually no disturbance. The kids' library is situated at the ground floor, with a no shoe allowed hall filled with kids' books and miniature chairs and tables for the comfort of kids. Parents can also accompany the kids in there to read together. What a quality and fruitful time to spend together!! I did not explore the main library on 1st floor as after Ian had finally made up his mind the 3 books that he wanted to bring home, after one long hour at the kids' library, we headed home for lunch.

The ground floor also houses a newspaper section filled with major daily papers like The Star, NST, Utusan Malaysia and Nanyang. A few round tables with chairs are provided for the public to read newspapers.
