Community Library in a Mall

I was talking about books with my buddy, Yanie of The Red & White Book over breakfast sometime last week when she mentioned about a new Community Library in her area. I was curious (never been to such library so far) but was really impressed about the collection of books she described.
So, since I need to run some errands in Ampang that day, I decided to check out the library after picking up Ms.LZ from school.
The Community Library is located in Aeon Mall, AU2 near Setiawangsa, KL and owned by Perpustakaan Negara Malaysia.
Although it is housed in just a small space of about 500sq.ft, the library managed to target young readers of all ages especially kids as the setting for kids section is fairly spacious.
It has a collection of a good mixture of books for all age groups and reading preferences. Plus, the books are all brand new.

 Operating hours are as follows:
Tuesday - Saturday : 10am to 7pm
Sunday: 10am - 6pm
Closed on Mondays & Public Holidays
Lunch Break: 1 - 2pm

Each registered PNM member are allowed to borrow up to 3 books for 3 weeks. Late returns will be cahrged charged RM0.10/day. Howeever, if you have yet to register with PNM, all Malaysian Residents may just present their MyKad/MyKid for a quick registration with the officer in charge.
Both Ms.LZ and me grabbed 3 books.. just enough to occupy our time during this school holiday :-)

and these are mine, some light readings .. just finished 'The Undomestic Goddess' & keep on repeating 'Nursery Style' like every other day (urgghh! i wish this book is mine! should get one from Borders)..
just started 'Can You Keep a Secret' yesterday..
