Let's giving away our book! (:

I looooove holiday. But I much more love my holiday to work on some project that I couldn't do on my daily activity. So yeah, after I met a curator of a new-born-small library based in my hometown (Tegal) called "Perpustakaan Tiga Surau" in twitter, I'm so excited to donate some books that I have for them.  

Come from a small thriving village in Tegal make me understand much how the villagers need some facility that the townsfolk easily get, including library. I always prefer to school in another place beside my hometown because I'm craving for the facility that I can't get there. 

So, the story begin when I met a curator of Perpustakaan Tiga Surau (@fuadikamal) in twitter, and then I read their website and I begin to "Okay, why don't I spend my holiday to collect my books and donate them to Tiga Surau?". But unfortunately, I'm not a book-maniac that continuously buy book every month so I just collect a few book. That's why now I'm posting this on my personal blog, which is aims to inform the others of this new-born library. 

Don't you love books?


or you have some stack of books just like this in your home? 


why don't you share your happiness of the books by giving away some of them for the others? The others who in needs, the others who don't have any chance and facility like you? ((:

I plan to send the book on early March 2013, so if you feel like donating, you could mention me on twitter (@kelimuttu) or send me an email on kelimutu.rizki@gmail.com. I'll be glad to help you deliver your book to Tiga Surau. We receive some book genre like children book, school book, motivation, biography, novel, religion, or anything that possibly helpful for them. 

Or maybe you want to reach them directly? Just surf this link then : Tiga Surau Website Twitter , Facebook.

Oh, you can also read the Indonesian version of this post here. I'll be waiting for your response and donation! Happy Valentine and bye! (;

  1. Waw kelli, it's been a long time that I never left any comment on ur blog but FYI, I do blogwalking on ur blog and sometime I didn't know what I'm going to say on comment box. And here what I'm going to say on this post.

    Thanks to you that gave me the link to this post so I can read this. It's really great project!! You always have a new idea to make innovation.
    I really love reading books, it gives me a new idea in writing and gives me knowledge but same like you, I often to buy a book cause mostly I read books in library or I just lending its from my friends. I would love to donate some of my books but all books I have is only my college book.
    But I'm willing to donate a book, maybe by the time I find a proper book for the library, I will contact you. And for the record: I never send any package to another place so maybe, when I find a book, you can teach me how to send the book. :)
    But all I can say now is only Good Luck for your project. You're doing great kelli. I don't know what I'm going to say again cause I know I'm giving you too much words on ur comment box. Sorry for all this too much words. Maybe I'm the only one person in the world that hate valentine's day however I wanna say happy valentine's day! :)

  3. Nice idea, i've been dotaning my book since i was junior high. They're all my school text books actually, but i hope they can be useful. I'm not a fan of book too, so i don't know what kind of book i can donate. All of my book shelf full of my psychology text book -__-' i don't read novel, so i don't buy even one. I will ask my sister whether she wants to donate her school book or not..:D i will contact you asap! :D
