Inspiration library is now open to the public and welcomes everybody to come and read a great selection of book, including; fantasy, motivational, architecture, fashion, food, photography, travelling, arts, business and more. Located at Factory Phnom Penh, the largest multi-purpose hall in the capital, the library is open Monday to Friday from 8 am to 5 pm.
During the event launch last week, Yeoun Roth, one for the two librarians, stated the library was made to promote more reading among the younger generation.
“Now everybody can come and read their favourite books in our library, with many options for convenient seating too,” he said.
Factory Phnom Penh is already a popular place where young students gather to hang out, work and study. With many events hosted in the workspace attracting hundreds of people every day.
To make reading more convenient and exciting for the younger generation Inspiration Library is furnished with luxury artistic furniture, where you cannot find anywhere else. From a large comfy sofa to a mini-conference table, all seat options were designed to please the long hour book worm.
In addition to the beautiful decorations, the library also offers a membership subscription and monthly book exchange programme.
Roth explained, “We have a monthly book exchange, and we offer a membership for those who want to borrow books to read at home. To get a membership card, all you need to do is register in the library and pay a 10,000 riel ($2.5) yearly fee.”
The library also welcomes any book donations, Roth added.
23-year-old English teacher, Long Phalinda, said that a library is a place where everyone can share knowledge and can get to know each other. It is a storage of education and place everybody should come often.
One such student, who attended the launch ceremony was, Po Sovannareach, a grade 9 student at Liger Leadership Academy. He came to find an animation book to read and was surprised at how amazing and beautiful the decorations of the library were.
“The sofa and furniture, space and environment are so good, the space is big enough for around 50 people or more,” he said.
“The library has so many books to read and I will try to come here often,” adding, that it would be great if the library would open during the weekend and public holidays too when schools are closed. ●
