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.
Membership to the library is free of charge for children under 12 years of age while it is only a one-time RM10 for those above 13 years old. Members are allowed to borrow four books at any one time, for up to two weeks and renewable up to two months.
Books in the library are arranged in this order:
Ground floor – newspapers and magazines
1st floor – Malay and Arabic books, collection of texts
2nd floor – Children’s books
3rd floor – English books
4th floor – Chinese and Tamil books
5th floor – Reference books, publications, newspaper archive, etc.
No personal books or files are allowed from 1st to 5th floors. No food and drinks allowed in the library.
