We have come to the end of “Who Wants to be a Librarian II” contest. A total of 106 students took up the challenge and answered 6 questions based on RP Library . They cracked their heads and surfed through the library’s website, searching for clues. However, only 1 students managed to answer all the 6 questions in a quiz correctly.
The thoughtful librarians organised this contest so as to increase the awareness and understanding of library services. We also hope to encourage more students to make full use of the library facilities and resources. Well, it is just too bad if you have missed the whole excitement… But you can still refer to some of the questions and answers posted below.
Congratulation to PEH SENG HONG KELVIN!! He is the lucky participant who won the $15 Pastamania Voucher.
Well done !!!!
