“Great Library for a great City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Other countries should visit the national library in Singapore to see how a public library should be like and how it should serve its people. Kudos to city and its government for this magnificent addition to the quality of life for adults and youth alike.

“Books, books and more books”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

There's a variety of well categorized books to choose from. Usually quiet and gives one a sense of peace while doing some quiet reading.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

The roof terrace is very nice. Gives a good view.
There is a small exhibit about campaigns in Singapore which tell a lot about the history of this state.

“Knowledge Trove”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Good for locals as a knowledge source, but nothing much for tourists, other than the occasional exhibits. Check NLB website for details.
