    (Translated by Google) The biggest library in Singapore. The book collection is very complete and there are many categories. The building elevator is also very fast. The environment is very clean and elegant. Singapore Fasum is always well-maintained and makes people who come here feel comfortable. (Original) Perpustakaan terbesar di Singapura.

    Do not hesitate to stop by the café, 3rd florien, They prepare exclusive and basic food. Another plus on the top of the architecture of the building, it’s facilities and its exhibitions.

    14+ floors of books and awesomeness! Floor at the basement floor is the Central Public Library - where you could borrow upto 16 books at a time once you become a member. Totally recommended to become a member if you're a resident. Has a large separate garden-themed section for kids and a great collection of kids' books. Upper floors are for Reference and Reading - each floor has large spaces dedicated for reading with a good view of the city - great place to work/study. Reference sections are pretty exhaustive and covers pretty much all categories at Depth. Complimentary Wi-Fi & Cafe at Floor 1. Must-visit for any bibliophile!

    (Translated by Google) Library with an attractive and comfortable design. Books classified as complete make me feel at home. Located near Bras Basah. I really like visiting Bras Basah because I can find old or new books at very cheap prices. The location is very easy to find because it is located on the side of the road, access to public transportation is very easy (Original) Perpustakaan dengan desain yang menarik dan nyaman. Buku buku tergolong lengkap membuat saya betah. Berada di dekat Bras Basah. Saya sangat suka mengunjungi Bras Basah karena dapat menemukan buku buku lama ataupun baru dengan harga yang sangat murah. Lokasi sangat mudah ditemukan karena terletak di pinggir jalan, akses transportasi umum sangat mudah

    Great library, peaceful place to rest. Entrance is free, and that gives you access to the main library as well as the exhibitions. I went specifically for the On Paper exhibition, which was well curated and informative. The views from the upper levels are very nice, and floor 10 has a small garden you can look out from. Would recommend for both relaxing and studying.

    Multi floor library. It had a very modern design with bright and open air floor plan that made it nice to sit back and study or read a book. There is a film room, kids room, and an open air patio on the top added to the options inside. Great experience to visit this place often

    (Translated by Google) To Singapore just to see Merlion? Sentosa Islands? It is common! Let's look at other places that are worth more than just a public tourist spot. The National Library of Singapore is very grand. Complete and comfortable facilities for children. "My Treehouse" is a special library for children with attractive, complete, and comfortable interiors for children. Easy to reach by public transportation. Schedule a visit to the Singapore National Library for your next vacation. Recommended! ??? (Original) Ke Singapura cuma untuk melihat Merlion? Sentosa Islands? Itu sudah biasa!

    Best place to look for books to loan. Sometimes the events at basement great with free meal.

  • 5Lottie Fede 1 year ago
    I have books and then this is a must-visit place in Singapore for me. I could not realise that there can be such a large, varied and rich collection of books in Singapore. I have spent around 4 hours here but that was not at all enough. Wish I had some more time on hand

  • 5Jay Aaron 9 months ago
    Spent my Sundays here for the 9 months working in Singapore. Immense collection of books, journals, publications and research articles etc. Also, quiet place to study or do your work!

  • 5Doris Wilson 1 year ago
    Wide selection of books and resources - good for research and leisure. Bright, spacious, well-maintained facilities. Free wifi. You can come here to study, only thing is that you cannot leave your things unattended for too long or the people patrolling will come and remove it. Not just a library - it has a theatre box that hosts performances, a cafe, and exhibitions on rotation that are 100% worth visiting.

    National library in Singapore is a must visit for the people looking for knowledge and in love with reading. Nicely built and designed to help reading. Reach in resources and references. Kids section were designed nicely in a way that it will attract kids. One important point I noticed that they have board to acknowledge the Singapore writer that is greatidead

    (Translated by Google) Facilities that are beautiful and well-arranged like Singapore. I thought it was raining in the courtyard and it was leaking ... (Original) シンガポールらしく整ってキレイな設備。 中庭雨降っているなと思ったら雨漏りだった…

    More than a library, NLB has loads of exhibitions changing every few months. Do check out their talks and events on top of their books and research materials. - Rooftop events require access card to take the elevator. Security often don't know the directions or protocol often when asked. They should be briefed better.

  • 4Rita Chang 10 months ago
