East Mauk Village is a village or sub-district located in Mauk district, Tangerang regency. The Mauk community is a heterogeneous society consisting of Javanese ethnicity (Java Banten), Sundanese, Betawi, and Chinese. Javanese ethnicity comes from the Cirebon community who migrated to Banten since the establishment of the Banten sultanate. Meanwhile, for the Sundanese ethnicity, based on history, we can ascertain that they are the original inhabitants of Mauk because it is still within the Kingdom of Padjadjaran’s territory. As for the Betawi and Chinese ethnicities, they came from Batavia (Jakarta).

With the inauguration of the TBI Robert Boyle in East Mauk village, we hope that in the future that TBI can become a forum for children in East Mauk village to develop their potential through books available at TBI Robert Boyle. Moreover, we also hope that TBI Robert Boyle can trigger children in East Mauk Village to always like reading.
