(10 October 2017, George Town) The Penang Digital Library Phase 2 (PDL-P2) to be constructed in the state government quarters building here is expected to be fully operational by the end of Dec next year.
“The existing PDL can only accommodate 100 to 120 users at any one time on weekdays and it can not accommodate the increased number of users on Sundays and public holidays,” he told reporters here today.
Lim said the state government had allocated RM10.8 million for the PDL-P2 project, themed ‘library in the park’ with a total area of 16,000 sq ft and could accommodate 540 users at any one time, four times higher than the current PDL capacity.
He said PDL-P2 would focus on Esteam (English, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) concept and 20,000 Esteam-based electronic readings would also be provided. — Bernama
