  • An oasis of calm in busy somerset. The best thing about the place is the quiet throughout the library. A brilliant place to bring a laptop and get some work done. Books wise- their fiction section is a little lacking(could be subjective as I couldn't find many books I liked) Main strength seems to be the non fiction section on the 2nd floor. All in all a good place to decompress from the crowds(if you're an introvert like me) and chill with a book, or if you're lucky enough to get a table(limited) get some work done.
  • Pretty much a white elephant if you try to use it as a library but nice place to rest and flip through some magazines when tired from shopping for hours. Not really accessible to the elderly and the disabled. I expect someone will get a nice chunk of our tax dollars when they fall from the ladders used to reach the high shelves and break their legs but at least its nice to look at. Probably won a designer award somewhere.
  • Quiet place to do some reading although the books collection here is not extensive. Mainly design,architecture,arts, hobbies and some fiction books. Have some chinese books too.
  • Unique design. A nice place to read books. Location is not easy to find. Books are limited in collections. But I love this place so much.
  • Lots of books on the arts and fashion that cannot be found in other public libraries. The shelf system is a bit more messy though. Books with similar number codes can placed on different ends of the library.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
