Bima Regency Intends to Move the Library Building to a more Strategic Location

Salemba, Jakarta - Regional Secretary of Bima Regency, West Nusa Tenggara, H.M Taufik, accompanied by Head of the Library and Archives Service Office of Bima Regency, Basyirun, specifically visited National Library on Friday (3/6). The two envoys were received directly by Prime Secretary of National Library, Sri Sumekar, Deputy of Library Resources Development, Woro Titi Haryanti, and Head of Planning Section, Adin Bondan Pasaribu. The arrival of Bima Regency’s Regional Secretary is to notify the location of the library building construction that changed from the previous location. Can it still be changed considering the previous location still needs time to become a busy location? Meanwhile, in the new location, the library building will occupy a public location that is crowded/visited at any time. 

"The new location is in a busier location. Close to the intersection and the beach. There are also many public areas available that have become one of the points of community interaction or a hangout place for young children," explained Taufik. The Regional Secretary acknowledged that the new area is not as large as the previous location but the selection of a more strategic location become a crucial reason why it had to be moved. 

Hearing that reason, the Prime Secretary and Deputy II of National Library said they could not immediately agree about it because the previous process had been agreed by a joint team from National Library, National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) and Ministry of Finance. Moreover, the construction of the library building uses a Special Allocation Fund (DAK) of 2020. This means that such matter should has been carefully thought out before proposing DAK by the regional government, including local Regional Development Planning Agency (Bappeda).

The same thing was said by Head of Planning, Adin Bondan, that if Bima Regency wanted to change the location then the process must start a new from the beginning. Starting from the site review process to the Detailed Engineering Design (DED) preparation. And the process is limited by date line, so it is not going to be easy if there are urgent changes.
