The government in Johor has waived the yearly membership fee at 74 public libraries in Johor to encourage more Johoreans to read. The waiver took effect yesterday, 22 April, 2014.
This means that new members at the 74 public libraries will not have to pay (RM5 for children and senior citizens, RM10 for teenagers and RM20 for adults) when they register as a member.
According to Johor’s Chief Minister Datuk Mohamed Khaled Nordin, the libraries in Johor currently have a total of 350,000 members and one million visitors.
