    No many seats to study. They’ve also changed the tables where we can do individual studying at to group tables of 4 which forces us to share tables with other people. However it’s rather quiet so it’s a pretty great place to study in

    I really like the Serangoon library because there is a specific section where there are about 15 seats alone (near the entrance) And I think that’s very helpful. There also is a children’s section for 10-12 year olds and a 6-8 year old section right next to the 10-12 section. They also have comics for people that like to read comics. Close to the entrance. They have this display of books and I’ve picked a few books from the display that I’ve liked so that’s very nice. There is a fairly large section for Fiction and I am a Fiction fan so that’s great for me. There are multiple computers there too. I don’t know if it’s the best place to study as a student though. But the library’s location is really nice because just one level down (after you exit the library) there’s a mall. I personally really like the mall because there’s a Fair Price Xtra, restaurants, gadget stores and more. I wish there were more isolated seats instead of many at a certain section. The location outside of the library and mall is also nice because there is a bus station and a taxi station. Overall I would say that the Serangoon library is a very nice library to visit.

    Actually there’s nothing much in this library. It does bring some convenience to the nearby resident who want to get some books n not wanting to travel too far.

    One of the quieter library. It has a kids section and compared to other kids section in other library, this is one of the quieter ones. The other part of the library is definitely quiet, on a Sunday afternoon. Has a toilet outside the library, handicapped accessible.

    Located on the top floor of NEX Shopping Mall, this library is popular amongst students, especially from the nearby schools. Due to the current situation, each person is limited to a certain time slot (2 hours if I’m not mistaken) and you’ll be given a coloured sticker upon entry. Announcement will be made when the time is up.

    The library is very accessible via lift from Nex shopping mall. Or else slowly take the elevators up to the highest floor.

    Its magazine reading corner hosted unique magazines display and storage drawers. The cover of the new magazine issue is display at the front of the drawer. To get a copy, pull out the drawer.

    The washroom has washing basins facing an open field. Good to relax tired eyes.

    Nice cosy n small library. It was rather annoying though when the library assistant hovered around me and my daughter as we browsed the shelf we were keen in. She then went on tidy up the very row of books we were looking through and arranging the already neat shelf so we had to stand aside for her. Did she really have to at that mome ? Maybe after us ? It felt like an unpleasant shopping experience with one of those salesperson neatening up every item you have touched . And we were not making a mess or anything . Plus she put back the book we have picked out to borrow too. Anyone else had this experience ? Is it the normal etiquette in libraries here ?

    Few seats available for studying due to space constraints. You have to be there to queue from the moment the library opens or there will be no seats available, even during lunch time as people tend to leave their belongings there. However there is a good selection of books available. The librarians are very strict and will not tolerate anything that appears to go against the library rules, asking patrons to leave immediately in a harsh tone. Some patrons might find this acceptable, others humiliating and over-the-top.

    Currently due to covid it is not so crowded and there is liberal space for everyone
    However pre-covet it was pretty crowded narrow and generally impossible to get a seat

    But all in all I have to say that it is a wide open area for browsing books. But you can perish the hope of finding a space to sit every once the covid restriction is over

    Books were arranged in a reasonably logical sequence, and the rows were kept tidy. Fairly wide range of books for all ages. One thing to note is that they do not seem to segregate teenage / young adult from the adult range, unlike some other NLB branches visited.

    Seats at the library will make one doze off. Either that those uncomfortable chairs will make one hunch. The previous time much better although lots of room to improvise. If the library encourages n promotes reading, Nex really needs some revamp. Also, some librarians there can make one very uncomfortable, they actually scritinised and glared. As mentioned, lots of room to improve in all areas. Not that conducive for both reading pleasure n for students to study. Air con overally low, freezing ! Best if the library could be operated 24 hours, thus encourage reading habits. Those chairs, pls look into it, tad ridiculous. Pls test it out yourself.

    Nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. Huge collection of books available. The best thing is any one can go and read books. No need membership for that. If someone need to borrow books, then only you have to take the membership. Sanitization is doing frequently. I would love to give more than 5 stars. Thank you SG for these facilities

    The library is centrally located in the Serangoon next plaza in level 4 R. It is modern and equipped well with the books . There are several TOP books in good topics available here both in fiction and non fiction side .

    The kids collection is very large and informative . Wifi is available in the premises. No food is allowed inside . Water can be taken in .

    The library staff are accommodative and kind . The library some times becomes too crowded especially during the exam season . Other than that it is a place worth your visit in this area.

    Joke of a library.

    Noisy, no tables at all when programs ongoing, and very crowded.

    When there is a table, it’s not a bad place to study, program zone has good lighting and decent soundproofing.

    Overall, only good if you find a table, which is only possible if you go very early or very late.

    It’s on the rooftop of NEXand kids tend to gather outside to study or hang out.
    The library is relatively large and after a recent renovation, there are more seating areas. For a library located within a mall, it’s comfortably placed and designed with a large selection of books and genres, including the arts.
    One setback to mention is the lack of English movies. There are very few English movies there except for documentaries and if you are looking for movies, you should go to another library (esplanade or National).
