Brunei: Waking up Librarians

Jewelle, a former librarian now living in Brunei is asking the librarians to get up to date with what library visitors want. “From working with books and printed matters, we now have multimedia. From providing reading materials we now have to offer information. From being a place to relax and enjoy the air-conditioned room, we now have to provide a library that people can read, do research, find information, get entertain, work on projects and have fun.”
