Useful library and community centre

What we say: 4 stars

Pondok Pekak was originally set up as an adult lending library in 1995 and now boasts a collection of more than 10,000 books in more than ten languages.

The library lives on and for an annual fee of 250,000 rupiah you can borrow an unlimited number of books.
As the library has grown, so have the services it offers and it now provides a library service specifically for Balinese children, music and dance classes and a range of other classes including learning Bahasa Indonesia.

It's run very much along the lines of a traditional community centre that might operate in the West and is a useful place to find out what's happening in town behind the tourist veneer.
