Although I pass by the Perak State Public Library often enough, I have never set foot inside; never had the occasion to. See, I am not a bookworm and even though I do like to read, I used to patronise the Tun Razak Library along Jalan Panglima Bukit Gantang Wahab, and that only to get what I need and read at the comfort of home. I can never understand how people can be comfortable “studying” in the library for hours on end, wearing fancy clothes, sitting properly and whispering!

So the Origami Demonstration & Workshop (Demonstrasi Dan Bengkel Origami) gave me a reason to visit the Perak State Public Library and because I arrived extremely early for the Workshop, I had plenty of time to walk around and of course, take some photos!

I remember being there on a Saturday morning. I guess it is one of the busiest times of libraries. I was told that we are not allowed to take a bag into the library, unless it’s a handbag. However, because I was a member of the public and was there for the Origami Workshop, I was allowed to enter with my shoulder bag. Phew, luckily!
