Page 4: Freedom is Joy

/ Tuesday, November 30, 2010 /

What appears in your mind when you hear “public library in Jakarta?” Dusty? Boring? Well, yeah, it’s pretty hard to find a cozy-cool library with great collection of books. I mean in topic, not amount.

But this place, Freedom Public Library, is different. Located at Jalan Proklamasi No.41, Freedom library offers book lovers a place where they can find little morsels of happiness.

 I love how everything arranged in this place. The plants, the chairs, the gazebo...
 

And...when i walked in to the main entrance..i just smiled and amazed. It’s so clean, cute, cozy, filled with books, lamps, woods.. Nice, nice decoration. There’s no reason not to fall in love with this place. I went straight to deposit counter to put my stuff and asked about membership.When you're depositing your stuff, instead of locker card, the librarian will give you a bag with number on it. Yes, it’s your locker number. For me, it’s a good idea. Visitors can use it to put their important stuff and books they want to read.


You can find books, newspaper, magazines, and journals about politics, religion, sociology, philosophy, economy, and literature. You can also use computers there to surf the internet. Bring your own notebook? Just use wifi. To get the membership, all you have to do is fill the form and show your ID to the officer. Voila! You’ll get membership card. No fee. No complicated procedure.


You can’t borrow the books and take them home. It’s even forbidden to take books out from the building. But you can copy it with very reasonable price.

Freedom Public library opens every day, except national holiday. Monday – Friday from 9 am – 9 pm. Saturday and Sunday from 10 am – 5pm.


I chose this as the first book to get copied :)
