(28 Aug 2022) Imagine reading by a bay window, looking outwards to pockets of greenery, while being bathed in natural sunlight. That’s one of the experiences you can expect when you visit the Kedah Digital Library (KDL) in Alor Setar.
Transformed from an existing two-story Anglo-Indian bungalow known as the Memorial Tunku Abdul Rahman building, the KDL is nestled amidst rain trees.
Occupying a 2.18-acre (0.88ha) site located next to Alor Setar’s largest urban park, Taman Jubli Perak, it thus embodies a “library in a park” concept.
In addition to refurbishing the main bungalow, the project also involved the addition of a new Annex Building. Completed February this year, the library is due to be officially launched next month.
