Just down the road from the Planetarium, stands another eye-catching, domed beauty. This Edwardian building dedicated to all things bookish was created to cultivate a love of reading and writing among young and old, well-read and illiterate. Apart from its involvement with disadvantaged communities, it hosts writing workshops for budding talents. Catch up on the latest offerings from home-grown talents in the central hall, where the newest releases from local publishers are showcased.
