    Nice, clean library. Very good selection of books. Layout of the library is pretty interesting too with enough seats.
    You might find this library not dead silent though (due to the children). But it can be easily remedied by sitting farther from the children’s corner.

    Wonderful library found at level 4 north wing at northpoint, 1 floor above timezone. The paths may seem a little narrow but it leads to the many sections / zones of the library.
    Books selections is good for a non regional library. Cove lighting helps makes the library a relaxing place to be in.

    In the future I hope for more computers and seats in the multimedia zone as it is always fully utilised. Actually hope to have more seating areas in the library in the future too.

    The library is slightly more noisy compared other libraries around, young teens and children running about speaking fairly loudly in the library.

    The quiet reading lounge is closed at the moment which is a shame.

    Overall very pleased with the layout and design of the library.

    With upgrading of North point to North Point City. The Library is riding along. I find it unnecessary to upgrade since it is still relatively new since the last upgrade. But, I guess Singapore is trying to be a smart nation and Library is one of the first few to become smart.

    The library is located in Northpoint mall – a place that is easily accessible, and serving the residents in Yishun town. It has quite a fair number of selection of reading materials though I wish that it may like to consider having large-print books, as well as in every library in NLB.

    Public library found at northpoint level 4 northwing above timezone. Good space and amount of books, multimedia resources. Walking space is good, does not feel cram in the library. Lighting is also good, soft lighting intensity & temperature is well balanced for reading areas.

    Slight negative is the lack of seats and seating area found within this library. Also there is an outdoor space located near the entrance that be further utilised.

    Before renovation this place may have been 4 stars, now it’s much worse.

    First of all, the lighting, the old library had slightly dimmer and warm light, it also made use of the natural lighting outdoor to light up the study areas. Now, there is cool white light throughout the entire library, which is not good on the eyes.

    Second, lesser tables and chairs, a mystery why renovation actually reduced the number of tables and chairs in the library. Now there is much less space to get work done. The new study area has scarce space and more harsh lighting as mentioned above, not a good place to get work done.

    Thirdly, noise. The central media area is hardly used the way it was designed to be used. People watch youtube and such on the smart devices. The areas around the smart devices are usually surrounded by people studying, often because there is a lack of tables. This area can get very noisy and unconducive often.

    Fourthly, the crowd, the library is clearly not equipped to handle the crowds. Often there are people talking loudly and children running around during afternoon hours.

    Fifth, waste of space, there’s a big green patch outside that isn’t used. The program zone is also small and the cramped environment makes it uncomfortable to get work done in.

    Overall, a big downgrade from what used to be a proper community library. Neither here nor there.

    There are insufficient tables and seats for people to do their work and hence, people will resort to find an empty space on the floor to settle down. Despite not disturbing anyone or blocking any pathways, most, especially students will get asked to move or find a table by Librarians who doesn’t even consider the circumstances. + I think there should be a reminder posted to people who are hogging the tables and seats by sleeping, watching drama etc to go somewhere else since they are not even utilising the library for its purpose lols

    The first place I like to hang out. I will choose the yishun nlb..it’s very convenient to all yishun resident who live nearby to Northpoint city. … Big space and very helpful staff. Children section not bad.. the other section.. I prefer to have more chairs instead so that people can seat down to read..depend which day. Usually weekends more people in the library.

    If you are a Primary/Secondary School or /Tertiary student, do not come here after 6 pm as this is where families bring their children to kill time and most of the children are not disciplined properly. You’d be better off looking for somewhere else to study.
