The service provided by the library is good, there are many books here, and it is free for everyone to visit. You have to be a member to borrow library materials and fees may be levied on foreigners. Tourists are not allowed to borrow any materials. There are also many reference books not available for borrowing. On Saturdays, the crowd is there even before 9am. The students like to use the study lounge on level 5 for their schoolwork, however I also see many using other levels that are reserved for library book users only. The security allowed the students to bring their bags into the Lee Kong Chian Reference Library even though it is forbidden by library rules. Hence, on weekends, it is hard to find a seat, to enjoy the library books. Using of handphones, making calls and taking photos in the library is strictly forbidden, but many are still doing it, especially many visitors like to go to level 11, and take photos of the Singapore skyline there.
