with the re-opening of the National Library Building and Central Lending Library... crowds came... (as expected).. and queues swelled for people were borrowing books. Extra manpower was needed to help to ease the queue..
Incidentally, RamblingLibrarian blogged about the opening.. and Sunday Times reported on the crowds too in today's papers.
This made us feel like celebrities though.. har har... especially after waiting in line for Neil Gaiman for five hours... now i know how Neil Gaiman felt when he saw the never-ending queues... har har har..
i felt like saying.. where do you want me to sign on the book??!!
p/s.. of cos i'm not going to deface the books at all. :P
