Malakoff Launches a Mini Library

in Mukim Serkat

Malakoff Corporation Berhad (Malakoff), a member of MMC Group, launched a Mini Library to cultivate a reading culture within the local community especially among the younger generation, at Kompleks Penghulu Mukim Serkat, Pontian, Johor. This initiative which took place on 18 November 2018 was part of Malakoff’s 2018 CSR Education Programme in Mukim Serkat.

More than 300 books donated by staff were collected and then brought to the Mini Library to be tagged and arranged in racks provided by Malakoff. Present during the event were En Roslan Bokari, Penghulu of Mukim Serkat, along with local community leaders, representatives from Malakoff, as well as 40 kindergarten students from Tabika Sungai Kuali and Tabika Sungai Durian and their parents.

The fun-filled day commenced with a colouring contest before progressing to the highlight of the event, which was a story book recitation by Narimah Suratman, a regular volunteer at Kompleks Penghulu.

“This Mini Library is very useful to us as we would often bring our children here on weekends to search for resources for their school assignments, and this subsequently encouraged them to fill their free time by reading books”, said one of the parents, Suraya Md Ali.

Some of the students also expressed their appreciation towards this initiative as they can now have a proper place to read their favourite story books and do their revisions. The event ended with a prize-giving ceremony to students with the most creative colouring pieces.
