The widely anticipated Pustaka Sibu, currently under construction is expected to be completed in November 2018. The new complex will be a source of knowledge for all and easily accessible to the public due to its strategic location. The site is allocated at the Sungai Merah Town District and lies approximately 7km from Sibu Town Centre.
The proposed library is designed to facilitate general public, and as a community centre of knowledge and cultural enlightenment, where the community can access a vast store of information in both print and electronic media. The library accommodates the physically challenged members of the society, by providing wheelchair ramps, assisted toilets, elevators and auto sliding access doors.
Pustaka Sibu, conceived as the central region’s knowledge hub, will have close links to Pustaka Negeri Sarawak with libraries, archives and information centres in Sarawak, as well as globally.
The proposed library complements the existing Sibu Municipal Public Library in terms of collections, facilities and services. Visitors can participate in many other regularly conducted activities.
Pustaka Sibu is as the central hub to achieve Pustaka Negeri Sarawak’s goal of ensuring that all individuals in the State have equal access to information and acquire knowledge. Pustaka Sibu will be ready for service in first quarter of 2019.
