Why do you go to a library? To read and borrow books, study, or just enjoy the cool air-con with your family and friends? Our Singapore public libraries are great for all that, and so much more. With dedicated spaces and classes for certain hobbies, and vibrant designs to engage the littlest readers, each library has something special. To celebrate the new opening of library@harbourfront, we’ve selected our favourite public libraries and highlight why you should visit them soon, if you haven’t already.
1. library@harbourfront – For digital resources for all ages and amazing views of Sentosa
Located on the third floor of Vivocity shopping mall, library@harbourfront just opened on 12 January to an eager crowd. It’s Singapore’s largest public library in a shopping mall, spanning 3,000 square metres! You can look forward to a variety of around 200,000 books, magazines, and audio-visual materials. Designed with many open spaces and seats, this new library is a great place to hang out with your family and friends, and read together. The reading lounges offer the best views for that, looking out at the waters of Keppel Harbour and Sentosa. Young readers can also have fun learning through enhanced features such as augmented reality books, a creative maker space, and a new storytelling room with lots of upgraded digital effects. Adults can also enjoy digital resources at the six learning pods, targeted at developing skills.
