There's no denying that bookstores are every bookworm's favourite place to shop, but sometimes you just run out of bookshelf space and would rather borrow than buy. Our public libraries are on point with a huge selection of famous classics and brand new titles by every author imaginable, along with amazing facilities and architecture to boot.
However, following the new guidelines to minimise the spread of Covid-19 in the community, the National Library Board (NLB) is reducing the operating capacity in libraries and archives from 65 percent to 50 percent. It's encouraged that you make an online booking for your preferred slot before heading down at go.gov.sg.
Alternatively, you can borrow an e-book or digital newspapers and magazines instantly via the NLB mobile app and read on the go. There are also audiobooks if you prefer being read to by calm, soothing voices.
