After being closed for over two years, the public library in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail (TTDI) has finally reopened!

According to their Facebook post, the Perpustakaan Kuala Lumpur branch officially reopened last Saturday, 21 September, after being closed for renovations since April 2017.

A lot of work went into the modernisation of the library and it looks like it has been worth the wait

They now boast new services, a modern environment, and a wider collection of books. Most notably, the library looks absolutely fun and colourful now with all that indoor wall art.

As you make your way inside, you will be immediately drawn to the bright and quirky illustrations on the walls, all designed and painted by local talent Arif Rafhan Othman

Arif is a comic and visual artist, making art under the creative moniker Superdoofus Creative since 2014. Look at some of the designs he made!

The whole library was given a complete makeover, but the children's section was seriously given the biggest glow up

As a children-friendly library, there are many new facilities in place to draw the attention of young readers. The library now has interactive tables, an Internet corner, a games lounge, and even a movie room!

The rest of the library was given an equally bright and youthful look, complete with more IT services

The main reading room looks very well-lit, colourful, and spacious.

They also have a computer room, a meeting room, and a TV room filled with really comfy-looking armchairs and beanbags.

Looks like your weekend plans are all set!
