Abstract: The Sarawak State Library has been entrusted by the Right Honourable Premier of Sarawak to champion the awareness and advocacy initiatives of sustainability. There has been a number of collaborative campaigns on global issues awareness through physical and virtual programs. This poster shares the Sarawak State Library's commitment to sustainable development goals. Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, many people faced challenges with their activities and income. Some individuals turned to home gardening, but not everyone had the knowledge or experience to grow their own vegetables. To address this, Pustaka Negeri Sarawak innovatively provided hydroponic facilities and equipment to its users in the library's green space. It highlights hydroponics' potential as an educational resource for library patrons, encouraging learning and skill-building in growing vegetables while promoting sustainability in the community. In order to ensure that users acquire reliable information and guidelines for engaging in hydroponic growing activities, the library has organized relevant events, including workshops, talks, and guided tours. Furthermore, the library offers supportive documents and information sourced from books, articles, and journals in online databases subscribed by the library. The Augmented Reality (AR) is embedded in the poster to enhance visitors' experience and explore initiatives. Keywords: Augmented Reality, Community, Hydroponics, Green Space, Sustainable
