A visit to the Tampines Regional Library (TRL) yesterday has changed my perceptive of a library.
To me, a library is a quiet and peaceful place with a vast collection of books, references and resources, and is also a great place to study. However, at TRL yesterday, I was appalled at the sight of babies crying, children playing catching and children kicking bottle! For once, I thought I was at the playground!
Was not sure if their parents were there, but no one stopped them. I informed the librarian at the customer service counter. She went in immediately, and I follow suit. I overheard her telling the boy’s mother that the dustbin was nearby should they wish to throw away the plastic bottle. Below is a video of their “game”.
