It didn’t seem so long ago that I took the helm from Hui Chiang last year.However fast time seems to fly, the time for the next batch to take over drawsnear. It may seem like a normal year to everyone, but to have been able to leadthe club, handle the admin and head the activities, has been a great pleasure todo. I do hope that next year, the club will become the well-oiled clock that I hadenvisioned last year, and reach for greater heights.All the work we managed to do has not been possible without the help of theteachers, Ms Many, Mdm Ho, Mdm Loy and Mrs Yap. A great thank you to thecurrent EXCO for making everything work out. It has been a fun year.Here’s wishing the next year’s EXCO good luck! This is your Chief Librarian speaking. I know that we have faced many issues this year, be it from users of the library or within ourselves, and I congratulate everyone for all the hard work they have put in for the club and HML. Another year has passed, and the library is still standing, enduring on its roots. Each and every one is important to the club, and thanks to the members and especially Mrs. Yap and the staff, we have managed to enjoy yet another year in the library. I see that our recruitment numbers are low, but I am glad that those new librarians though few, have wonderful qualities in them and will make our library a place that is better than ever. From my point of view, this year’s activities have been enriching, and I sincerely hope that all librarians can keep the bonds they forged when we were gathered together to work together as a team to serve the library. Hopefully, I will observe less petty arguments between members disagreeing and I will see more of that strong friendship among librarians. This annual report summarizes this year’s activities and fun we had, and it contains some reflections as well. This report is a part of the library club’s history, and we have been going strong for many years already. I want to see that next year will be the same or better. This club is made depending on us. We shape how it works, and based on how much effort we put in, the club will prosper as much. So I wish all the best to everybody, and keep up the good work. Thank you.
