The Kedah Digital Library (KDL) offers visitors a creative reading space and a new dimension in knowledge acquisition.
KDL is housed at the existing Memorial Tunku Abdul Rahman Building in Alor Setar, in an area spanning 2.13 acres. The Memorial Tunku Abdul Rahman Building is an iconic landmark, rich with heritage value and charm, nestled in a lush green area.
KDL’s development is divided into two (2) phases and consists of several components, including a Mansion Library, reading spaces and a gallery hall to commemorate notable Kedah leaders.
The development of KDL is undertaken in two phases, comprising Phase 1 which will involve the renovation of the existing building as a Library Mansion, and Phase 2 which entails the development of a new annex building. These will be complemented with commercial facilities such as a cafeteria and restaurant, as well as a community hall that will serve as a multi-event space. With Phase One completed, KDL provides a conducive environment that encourages interaction and collaboration; and as a place where knowledge is obtained via the use of information and communication technology.
