Cabinet Secretariat DWP Admires National Library Service Facilities

Cabinet Secretariat DWP Admires National Library Service Facilities

Medan Merdeka Selatan, Jakarta - Visiting National Library changed the impression in Hani Anung Pramono’s mind, advisor to Dharma Wanita Persatuan (DWP) of Cabinet Secretariat, of a dreary, boring library. In her opinion, library currently does not only provide books but also various other facilities that can be utilised.
 
"Coming here changes my thought of library. Usually library looks gloomy and the books look unkempt, but here it is different. The library building is good, and also comfortable," she said on the sidelines of Cabinet Secretariat DWP activities, at Executive Lounge 24th fl of National Library Service Building, Friday (26/7).
Since its opening, National Library has continued to facilitate activities of government agencies and the public, including scholarships awarding by Setkab DWP for outstanding students that are sons and daughters of Cabinet Secretariat (Setkab) employees.
 
Hani said that her party deliberately held an event at National Library to introduce library to the sons and daughters of Setkab employees. "Library is centre of knowledge, many books can be used by children to increase their knowledge," she continued.
Meanwhile, Director of National Library Muhammad Syarif Bando, explained that the library service facility building on Jalan Medan Merdeka Selatan is in line with President Jokowi's expectation, a library that can reach the public so within the last three years, since it was inaugurated on September 14, 2017, National Library has been able to transform the entire collection.

"National Library is designated as the world's best library in open access to scientific articles with a total of 2.3 billion journals. In addition, National Library is also the only library that has Indonesia OneSearch application connected to approximately three thousand libraries," he explained.
