SPACE, STATE, CITY

The soul of the city is in its people – it is in us. To bring change to the city, to confront bureaucracy, traffic jams, and trash, we must confront ourselves.

The Library Festival 2016 is a celebration of change and new beginnings. It marks the launch of the Library for Social Democracy, and more importantly, it aims to inspire and lead the rejuvenation of Kuala Lumpur and its people.#LibraryFestPudu
