There was quite a bit of old newspapers in the library storeroom and I had to do something to make space for future ones. So I got my Year 1 college students to help bundle and tie them up. You can see us with the newspapers.
Halifi is transporting the newspapers to my car using a trolley.
Loading the newspapers into the boot.
Making sure all the paper fits into the boot. After work, I would send the old newspapers to the recycling centre. Accompanying me to the place was another librarian, Iffah.

Weighing the old newspapers.
A total of 80 kilogrammes.
Waiting to be paid. Each kilogramme of newspapers is 22 sen. I got paid RM18. The man gave me a bit extra.
See! I am holding the RM18 from the sale. The money will be used to buy snacks for the Resource Centre Open House next Tuesday.
