Closure of library@orchard: D-Day (Part 1)

We don't like to say that it's a closure of a library. We'd prefer to say that the library has "moved on".

But reading the many blog posts -- from the citizen reporters, the comments left at the library@orchard blog, and those who simply blogged about it -- I guess we have to call it as it is.

It's 1 December, 2007.

library@orchard is no more (the one at Takashimaya Shopping Centre anyway... but the new one will be ready by 2010).

Here are shots of the day before the Moving On Party for library@orchard:

They are students volunteer helping to retrieve books to be transferred to other branches.
