SHAH ALAM: Se­lan­gor Men­tri Be­sar Datuk Seri Mo­hamed Azmin Ali yes­ter­day launched four mo­bile li­braries which will be de­ployed to the state’s low-cost hous­ing ar­eas to bring the joy of read­ing to them.

Azmin said the four vans, named Mo­bile Se­lan­gor BEST (Bring Ex­cel­lence Into So­ci­ety), will cater to the 1,346 low-cost flats in the state in­volv­ing 1.1 mil­lion res­i­dents.

This, he added, is in line with Se­lan­gor’s ef­forts to­wards achiev­ing the “Smart State” sta­tus and for the state gov­ern­ment to be more re­spon­sive to mod­ern de­mands and the needs of the peo­ple.

“It is hoped that this will cre­ate knowl­edge­able low-cost flat com­mu­ni­ties and set the foun­da­tion for a re­spon­si­ble, clean, happy, and har­mo­nious cul­ture.”
