KL Children’s Library

Yassin has been a member of KL Children’s Library since last year and the last time we went was February 2012. Since it is now school holiday, I took him and his cousin to the library to read books. They have been in front of the computer too long.

While he was reading, I drew the inside on the library. I wanted to show what it is like in the library but cannot do so as taking picture is not allowed in the library.


KL Children’s Library has quite an impressive collection of good picture and fiction books not to mention references. Other than books, this library also offers activities such as storytelling, board games and multimedia experience especially for members who are at the age between 4 to 12 years old. Do enquire the schedule of activities from the counter as activities vary from time to time.

Below is some details about the library:

I totally recommend this library. Unlike the children section at National Library, this library is more quieter and more organised. Bear in mind that the librarians are quite strict here but I think this is a good effort to discipline our kids as library is meant to be a reading place and not a place to run or make noise.
