The Chief Librarian, Dr Khasiah Zakaria welcomed guests with an opening speech where she emphasized on the importance of works on preserving manuscripts, rare materials and other valuable items for the benefit of all.
The importance of tangible and intangible cultural heritage can be observed by studying the wealth of knowledge and skills that were transmitted through the items and passed on from one generation to the next.
With the understanding of cultural diversity, the society would be able to foster goodwill among the community as it helps to shape and develop values, aspirations and mutual respect.
