Selangor Place of Interest | Shah Alam Library – Perpustakaan Raja Tun Uda

Have you been to Perpustakaan Raja Tun Uda, Shah Alam?

I did and have so much fun. I went to the library on a play school trip with friends, teachers and my mom. Yeah, mom was there too.

Raja Tun Uda Library incorporates the concept of a “Library in the Park“, comprises a six-storey building. It was opened to the public since 22 July 2011.

The flagship of Perbadanan Perpustakaan Awam Selangor (PPAS), the library nestled amongst the greens of the Kelab Golf Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah (KGSAAS), in Section 13, Shah Alam. The library complex itself was humongous and had a splendid view.

We went to Raja Tun Uda Library in a chartered bus. That was the second time I boarded a bus.

The first time was when we visited ICT Snow Walk which I haven’t update the story and pictures yet.

The kids were given a buddy each who will take care of each other during the trip. We must hold our buddy’s hand when walking from one place to another. But it’s not compulsory to sit with our buddy in the bus.

My buddy for the Raja Tun Uda Library’s trip was Mukhriz which we fondly call him abang. Mukhriz was my buddy during the ICT Snow Walk trip as well.

We were ushered to a room when we arrived. There were so many colorful stools in cute shapes inside the room.

We sat there to watch some friends read huge story books.

We also danced to some familiar music such as the Chicken Dance song. I saw mom dancing too…heh heh!

There was a small creative zone corner in the room for kids to test their skills in reading TV news just like a real TV broadcaster.

You need to sit straight in front of a green background and read the texts that appear in the TV screen.

Your image reading the news will appear in another TV with some cool background. My friends were having so much fun but I didn’t try it because I’m not able to read well in a fast speed.

There was also a big fake tree in the children’s section. We can sit and read books under the tree.

The tree was not a real one but did amazing job creating an enjoyable reading environment for young children like me.
