Seremban township picked for developer’s 12th book hub


UEM Sunrise Bhd continues its tradition of giving back by establishing another BukuHub, this time at its joint-venture township in Forest Heights, Seremban.

Located in the Sunrise MCL Land Sdn Bhd community centre which also doubles as the Forest Heights sales gallery, the 12th BukuHub in Malaysia houses about 400 books donated by the public.

BukuHub seeks to enrich lifestyles while cultivating the reading habit and ensuring books are widely accessible to the local community.

In addition, the community centre also intends to inspire integrity as there are no check-in and check-out counters.

By discovering new perspectives, readers can gain empathy and knowledge while reading can also reduce stress levels and help address cognitive deterioration.

“We are thrilled to open our next BukuHub in Forest Heights and aspire to create more spaces for activities, especially to cultivate the habit of reading.

“Having a mini library will also help bring the community together and foster a more inclusive community,” said UEM Sunrise chief operations officer (central) Liong Kok Kit at the launch.

Also present were Negri Sembilan investment, industry, entrepreneurship, education and human capital committee chairman Datuk Dr Mohamad Rafie Ab Malek, school teachers and students.

The Forest Heights township in Seremban is expected to be fully completed by 2028.

Forest Heights’ Community Centre BukuHub is open from 9am to 5pm from Monday to Friday.
