Closure of library@orchard: D-Day (Part 3)

[From Part 2]

Three videos that were screened at the library@orchard Moving On Party, 30 Nov 2007.

1) Angela Jean's tribute to library@orchard - "You Are The One":


Cast: Alice, Edmund, Ridzuan, Tianhong, Yip Leng
Music (used with permission): lenniez
Production: Xinhui, Angela Jean

She sent me and Jillian a draft after she and her friends made the recording on a Sunday. My immediate reaction was that the video must be viewed! I don't know about you, but I thought the video's punchline was at the end, with the words "In loving memory...".

library@orchard Moving On PartyIt's a video showing a few friends meeting at library@orchard, browsing through materials, the space, ordering something to eat at the cafe.

Nothing spectacular. Just about an everyday occurrance in a typical public library in Singapore. It's how young people use libraries.

But I believe this video will be more significant after a year or two when library@orchard has faded from people's memories. When memories of how library@orchard looked and felt like has become a ghost in our memories.
