Mas Abu menilai, taman baca itu merupakan langkah positif , dimana anak-anak dapat mengembangkan kreativitas secara bebas. “Saya harap ini dapat memicu tumbuhnya taman baca yang lain di Kota Kediri,” ujarnya.

Sementara itu, Budi Santoso pemilik Taman Baca Kampoeng Jadhoel Art, mengatakan pendirian taman baca itu merupakan keinginannya sejak kecil. Dulu, dia setiap hari ke perpustakaan waktu istirahat sekolah. Pulang sekolah juga begitu, makan terus ke taman baca. “Tapi untuk menyewa buku, saya tidak bisa karena tidak punya uang. Sejak dulu saya memang hobi membaca. Pada 2013 akhirnya saya punya taman baca sendiri,” ujarnya.

Tahun 2013,  Taman Baca Kampoeng Jadhoel Art mulanya hanya tersedia 30 sampai 40 macam buku. Namun setelah bukunya banyak,  taman baca ini sering dikunjungi oleh anak-anak sekitaran untuk sekedar membaca buku. Pada masa pandemi ini taman baca juga menyediakan wifi gratis sehingga anak-anak bisa bersekolah daring. Selain itu, anak-anak juga diajarkan cara menanam tanaman,  membuat batik, membuat kompos, dan membuat serta memainkan permainan tradisional.

Pada kunjungan itu, Budi Santoso memberikan buku jadul sejak tahun 1926 tentang Hukum dan Ekonomi ke  Walikota Kediri.  Turut hadir pada  kegiatan ini Plt Asisten Administrasi Umum Chevy Ning Suyudi, Plt Dinas Arsip dan Perpustakaan Enny Endarjati, dan Kepala Dinas Pendidikan Siswanto. (adv/bd)
