THE mini library at the Bayan Baru market will soon boast a host of activities for Bayan Baru residents, among them a book reading club and computer classes for senior citizens.

Pantai Jerejak assemblyman Sim Tze Tzin said there were also plans to induct more volunteers to man the library in the morning to enable more activities to be carried out.

“At the moment, the library is only open from 4pm to 10pm and students are coming here to do their revision and their homework.

“We have plans to get 10 computers for this library in the next two months and open classes for the senior citizens to become Internet savvy by teaching them how to use Facebook, blog, You Tube and even write e-mails to their grandchildren who are studying or living abroad,” he told reporters after handing over 500 novels, magazines, children’s storybooks, autobiographies and cookbooks to the mini library on Sunday.

“We want to create not only a reading society but also a know-ledgeable society,” he said, adding that a coffee-corner would also be set up inside the mini library.

He urged those who wanted to donate more books to the mini library to contact Victor at 019-4432088.

Sim later launched the Chinese version of PKR’s Suara Keadilan at the Bayan Baru market.

He said the fortnightly publication was sold at RM2 each.
