I have addiction to books
Do you like reading? Do you get exciting just looking your favourite authors and their books? Do you buy books and have yet to read some of them? If all of the questions, you answered yes, your addicted to books. I love going to the library. I brought my wife and Avery to the library. Avery is my niece. Getting Avery to love books early in her life.
One of the earliest libraries in the city. This building has large halls at the top of the building and many school concerts are held here annually. The library is located on the second floor. There used to be the lift but it has broken down and hasn't been repaired for a long time.
Sarawak flags hang together with the Malaysian flag. Malaysian flag quite closely resembles the US flag.
The Malaysian flag
THE US FLAG
I think while I was there, there was an event that was about to go on as there were so many chairs. I guess, we are a patriotic nation.
Going up a flight of spiralling steps
A great exercise before reading books.
Even the entrance, flags of Sarawak and Malaysia hangs.
Study corner. These are vintage furnitures.
I guess, they have never been changed since the day this building was built. I can tell from the fading colours of photos that have been taken a couple of decades old. Students do come here in the afternoon and study.
Books found here.
There are books in the Malaysian language, English and Chinese. A multicultural library. My favourite is definitely English. There are many good books here. I usually go to the Stephen King section. Outside the entrance, there is a book donation cage where you can slide your donated books in.
Many come here to have some quiet reading time.
There are plenty of seating for everyone. This feels quite vintage. Even the smell and the way the books are process. The date of returned is chopped onto the back of the book. At the other modern library in the city, everything is done digitally.
Lots of books.
It's great to read. Get some language upgrades and increase vocab as well gain new ideas.
The kids section
We brought Avery here. Unfortunately, there wasn't any young ones to accompany her. But she had some fun. Lots of books for kids. Usually, this place is full on a Sunday.
Avery and her funny expressions
Sometimes, Avery has these really funny expressions.
Lots of tribal designs.
Some cool paper projects
It's amazing what paper can turn into with some creativity. Who ever knew that free time could be so fun. Just draw a stencil cut out and have it glued together. You can make owls, cats, even birds.
My favourite section
James Patterson is quite popular here in Sarawak. He has some really interesting titles to read. Looking at how worn these books are, I can tell that they are quite popular. There are books here that tell the tale of what Sarawak used to be like. I found it interesting and borrowed one.
My wife and Baby Avery reading
For Avery, that's a great start. Get her interested by looking at pictures first and have her recognise the animals in those huge pictorial books.
I borrowed this book
RAINFOREST TEARS : A Borneo Story
Written by a British with Vocab that thrills my mind. A history of more than 500 pages about what Miri used to be like in the early 1900s all the way till the Japanese Occupation. A time when Sarawak was still ruled by the Brookes and some Britons wanted a different life than that in England.
Till all hell broke loose. The Japanese started bombing. I love reading. Do you love reading? What books do you read?
Hope that you enjoy reading this post.
