    There is many books to select from. Wide selection of books to browse through and borrowing the books is so easy and efficient now a days. Separated into 2 level make the visit experience more interesting where you don’t mix the different categories into one. Like the updates decorations and furniture set into the location.

    What I like in libraries: Books that are available that I originally have on my online To-Be-Read (TBR). Spacious environments. Multiple book genres.

    The first thing I noticed that drew my attention when I walked in was this little Harry Potter castle, which was on top of a bookshelf. The second thing I noticed was that they had a huge selection of audiovisuals.

    Once you walk a bit more towards the left, you’ll see a few bookshelves, and close to those bookshelves is a long white table. And near the white table there are 2 seats close to a window. I think that area is a really nice spot for reading, studying, and using your computers.

    If you want straight, you’ll see comics, and a teen section. In between 2 bookshelves, there are 2 seats, for safe distancing. There is also a magazine section.

    There is also a quick charge area. Near the quick charge area there are a few shelves of adult fiction.

    Overall, I think the Sengkang Library is a nice library for spending a long duration of time with your computer, or having a book you want to read. You can also study in the area of the white table and 2 seats near the window.

    I think it’s relatively good for reading but not studying because it’s really quite noisy due to the screaming of children at level 4 and outside level 3. DEFINITELY not enough study tables and chairs for studying.

    Lovely library. Good range of books. We love watching the sorting machine when we return borrowed books. The kids love the children’s section, very bright and clean. Doesn’t have a reference section with encyclopedias etc though

    The new Sengkang public library is now spread over 2 floors and the collection of books is great. The interiors are very nicely done. Just that people are so excited to have it reopened that it resembles a fish market more than a public library. I visited on a Sunday evening and it was absolutely hustling and bustling with hardly any places to sit and read. Hopefully it would provide a better experience once the excitement wears off among the public.

    It always been good experience coming here. I always find books to take away with. Borrowing the books is easy and returning is even easier. Just drop at the location and that’s all.

    They have lessen the book borrowed period from 5 weeks to 3 weeks. Now I have to finish and return the books every 3 weeks which sometimes might not enough.

    This library felt nice and clean, and had a nice modern aesthetic to it. It’s a shame that there’s no power plugs near the desks, especially when almost everyone uses them nowadays to study.

    Not bad for a neighborhood library. They have shelves of books for children of all ages, sorted according to age appropriate-ness. Staff aren’t so nice, we got scolded a few times for kneeling on the floor while selecting books. But many books are on the bottom shelf, idk what to do lol bend?

    This is a two storey library and that easily makes it better. If you feel like the children section can be loud, you may find other reading spots. Conveniently located inside the mall with lots of reading books for small children. Lots of library staff too to remind the children to keep quiet while inside the library. My daughters love to hang out in this library after school.
