Birthday celebration at Central Public Library, 12 Nov 2010

No, it's not that the public libraries are starting to hold birthday parties for library-goers (although...)

I was at the Central Public Library yesterday, for a meeting. It so happened the CTPL library staff threw a birthday bash for the library. Library customers were included of course.

There was cake, which the library staff cut and served to customers. A bunch of kids, there for a Class Visit session, were unabashedly tucking into the cake (which made the library staff happy of course).

The adult customers were more shy. Our Senior Director & Chief Librarian (Public Libraries), pictured on the left, gamely approached them and personally served them cake.

For the rest of the day, there were tokens to be redeemed (for those who borrowed library items), games to be played, Polaroid pictures to be taken, Henna painting...

... there was also a Nat Geo exhibition (I saw people playing with remote control cars dressed up as animals, in a safari mockup).

Central Public library opened its doors five years ago, together with the opening of the National Library.

Here's to more good years :)

  1. Wow, it sure is fast. I still remember when Central Public Library first shifted over to Bugis and the responses that it elicited. As always, congrats to the National Library Board for a job well done after all these years. Because of my reading habits, borrowing books sometimes work better for me and I love your selections. :)
