Launch of SEPINTAS and PPAS Internet Network - Sabak Bernam (Phase 1)

On the 31st of July 2022 during the Jelajah Iltizam Selangor Penyayang in Gombak, Perbadanan Perpustakaan Awam Selangor (PPAS) launched the Skim Pinjaman Teknologi Asas Selangor (SEPINTAS) or better known as the Desktop & Laptop Loan Program. SEPINTAS is one of the Selangor state government's Iltizam Selangor Penyayang initiatives to provide free desktops and laptops to the public, especially for the B40 group. There are 50 selected library premises that will be supplied with 10 units of desktops and 10 units of laptops to lend to the community.

At the same time, Phase 1 of the PPAS Internet Network Development Project was also launched. The project's first phase will begin at PPAS Sabak Bernam which has mostly no internet access. With this wider PPAS network, PPAS focus on the field of information technology will be at the core of Smart Library. When completed, a total of 95 library buildings throughout Selangor will be connected with high-speed internet.

SEPINTAS and the PPAS Internet Network Development are part of the Selangor Digital Education Ecosystem, a collaboration between PPAS and SMARTSEL.
