“There are a lot of books!!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

National Library is along the Victoria Street near the Bugis Junction. There are a lot of kinds of books, from children's to academic. That' why you can find books you want. It's so quiet and clean, so this place is suit to study although there are a lot of people. In addition, this library has student lounge. Therefore, you can study comfortable.
Besides, because information staffs are so kind, if you have any troubles, you can ask them. They will solve your problem politely.
If you are a tourist, you cannot borrow a book. But it is worth going there to see a lot of varieties of the books and small museum.

“Great selection of books and ambience”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

If you didn't know better, you would have thought this futuristic building was an office building. All the books are in very good condition and there's a wide selection to suit all. Go for the Reference Libraries - there's lots of treasures in there, and you can easily spend an entire day reading! The city view from the top is also pretty good.

“Rest weary feet and let kids read”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Nice children's library - will definitely bring kids over on next trip, why read at Kinokuniya when the Library is nearby!
