Instead of wandering around hallowed library halls, borrow a book from a box in the Lucky Garden neighbourhood. An initiative of free library movement Pustaka Jalanan, the book box aims to cultivate the habit of reading via free and easy access to books. It’s located near Seksan Gallery in Bangsar, a spot specifically chosen because of the sizeable pockets of low-income migrants and their children in the area. Future plans include more boxes of books in more parks, and to make Pustaka Jalanan a meeting point for everyone to share books, or just chat. Pick up a book from the box (they’re mostly novels and children’s books, but donate a few if you can) and spend an hour or two reading under the leafy shade of trees.
