This library has a huge array of books - especially the reference sections! Recommended for their history section.

A bookworms ultimate haunt in Singland!!! It's got everything - life, death, drama, controversy, sex, murder, mystery, etc. All to be enjoyed in the quietude of an abbey or monastry. Check out the high-rise garden on one of the top floors! Never get tored of this place even when there's nothing else going on!

Sorry but a library is a library. As it was just by our hotel, The Intercontinental, I popped in to have a look. I did enjoy the architecture of the building but perhaps I should have taken more time to do some research or something.

I came here when they held an event called "Hands: Gift of a Generation" placed outside the main building. There's a video show presenting the country's founding father. However, i got impressed on how they manage the library circulation. Yes, they put 24-hours bookdrop for returning the books.
