With 16 stories of literary wonder—including an impressive reference section, a vast public check-out area and well-known Drama Centre—the National Library of Singapore has become a staple not just of the well-read, but of the city’s skyline as well.
Travelers visiting this modern marvel can navigate indoor sky-bridges linking the library’s numerous wings to one another, or explore the two indoor gardens open to the public. Sky high elevators shoot to the 16th floor, where impressive panoramic views of Singapore and nearby Malaysia and Indonesia are among some of the best in the city. The main floor café and vast Plaza offer the perfect place to relax with a book while sipping cups of hot tea and sampling local pastries.
The National Library of Singapore is located at 100 Victoria Street, between Bugis Junction and Bras Basah Complex. It is accessible via the Bugis and Bras Basah MRT stations.
