Raja Tun Uda Shah Alam Library | Cheapest 6D Theater in Malaysia

The recent coverage of Perpustakaan Tun Uda Shah Alam Selangor (Raja Tun Uda Library) in The Star prompted us to make a visit to the most sophisticated library in Malaysia. Speaking of libraries, I love them. The sight and the smell of books on shelves always make me excited ever since I can read, perhaps at 6 or 7 years old though I was kind of offended by the signposts that say ‘Quiet Zone’ or ‘Shhh..Silence Please’ sometimes. Until today, I still don’t quite agree that library shall be a silence zone because interaction is also part and parcel of learning.
