Not Allowed to Take Books Home

Literacy Friends need to know that only annual members are allowed to borrow books to take home. However, visitors who buy daily tickets or are monthly members are only allowed to read here, but cannot take it home.

This is done in case the person concerned does not return the book. This is because there are many books with high prices of up to millions of rupiah, so the monthly membership fee alone cannot cover the losses. 

Cannot Bring Small Children

Baca di Tebet is a library for individuals aged 12 years and over. So, small children are not allowed to enter. According to the owner, this regulation was made to prevent undesirable things.

The problem is, the owner of this library does not want Baca Di Tebet to become a child care center. Later the parents come here asking “has my child eaten or not?”, so the management doesn’t want something like that to happen.

However, in the near future, Wien as the owner plans to place a special shelf containing children’s books on the first floor, adjacent to Makan di Tebet. As a result, small children can read books in this area.

Avoid Crowded Hours

Users who want to visit the Baca Di Tebet library can come as needed. However, on Fridays and Saturdays, this library tends to be busy, you know Literacy Friends, because many people usually look for time until the evening.

Therefore, for users who want to read books in this library, avoid Fridays and Saturdays. Meanwhile, Baca Di Tebet also limits users to a maximum of 50 people. This rule was implemented because there was a time when the number of readers increased to more than 60 people, thus disturbing the comfort of fellow readers. 

That’s the discussion about the Reading library in Tebet which is unique and has a homey atmosphere like your own home. It is not surprising that this library has many visitors, because the various facilities are complete and adequate, making visitors feel at home in this place for a long time. Greetings Literacy!
