Tun Razak Library, Ipoh

Perpustakaan Tun Razak

Tun Razak Library along Jalan Panglima Bukit Gantang Wahab was set up in 1977. I used to visit when I was schooling but haven’t stepped into the library since leaving school. I would say, most of us forget about the library once we start working. It is really a pity because the library is full of resources and it is there for us, free.

  1. Sometimes my friend and I got training we don’t have a suitable place.Can we bring our chess to the library just for training?

  2. MBI is the caretaker of this library, they behave like mini gangsters in the library. they are rude and have very bad attitude towards visitors better avoid going there. Parking your car there is another major problem risked being scratched for no purpose. You never get to see good librarian ethics in there.
