I am the libraRIan, and I'll be showing you around

But before that, we just wanted to run through the house rules with you.

Library House Rules

We only have two "rules" here, and they are:

Be Curious

We believe that if you approach things with curiosity, you'll naturally be open, kind and respectful.

Don't spend all your time here

Not that we think you will, with so much exciting content out there. But we just wanted to gently remind you to: remember to spend time with yourself, with people around you and with the world.

It's important to us that what we do here fits into your life harmoniously.
It wouldn't make sense to have a library for curious living and have the members not do any of that living...

With that out of the way, let us begin the tour!

On the homepage, you can see the various sections of the library at a glance.

Here's a quick overview of what you can find at each section

A good friend of mine and his brother ventured out to open their own Filipino restaurant: HÀO. Specializing in home made  pork buns – a recipe passed on through generations of Deluvios.

If you ever feel lost or would like to learn more about empori, this is the place.

Latest events and announcements will also be posted here.

Our collection of cozy and considered experiences.

Our collection ranges from digital content to DIY kits.

Here you'll find (mostly artist-ri's) musings on life and other random things, inspired by their creative process. Or as they prefer: musings that found them.

libraRIan's pick: Cold Brew Tea


Our library's pride and joy, our monthly newsletter: Why So Curious

We call it the monthly dose of curiosity because we'll be throwing questions at you every month. The newsletter also features cool reads, people and projects.
AND artwork from our artist in residence.

Here you will find all of past creations, including but not limited to newsletter back numbers of resource directions. If you like content spelunking, this is for you.

Status: periodically updated with new entries as we dust things off and archive them here

libraRIan's pick: Toolkit Directory

special series

AKA a fancy name for "others".
Artist-ri sometimes creates things that don't fit into my usual categories. So they get shoved here.

libraRIan's pick: Path to the Perfect Planner Series

Artist-ri's domain.

Here you'll find process pieces that give you a behind the scenes look at how the various experiences are created!

(PS: Artist-Ri is very snesitive of their space. So don't touch anything without permission.)

libraRIan's pick: 2021: The start of taste series and Identi-tea

Quick note on membership and access

As you're exploring the library, you might notice that some posts require you to:

  • Sign-in
  • Be a paid subscriber

So very quickly, the library has 3 tiers of access.

You can filter our collection based on accessibility using the following tags:

newly curious   |   pretty curious   |  always curious

Tier 1: Public Access (newly curious)

Posts that are Public can be accessed by anyone in the public.

Tier 2: registered member (pretty curious) [FREE]

You can sign up for a free library card to access more areas of the library

Tier 3: paying member (always curious) [PAID]

Becoming a paying member gives you full access to everything AND invitation to certain beta-tests of our experiences before they're launched.

You also become a proud supporter of the arts and help us (and the creatives we work with) stay alive. Go you!

If you'd like to learn more about library memberships, just go the Membership Inquiry Counter at the front desk!

We've come to the end of our tour

Thank you for your attention, now...
