I'm not so much of a book-person actually.
Growing in a family where mum loves to read,
library is definitely a place where we would hang out.


As we grow older, I don't tend to visit library that often anymore,
but it is always a place I would imagine to find solemn.


To go to Library @ Orchard by public transport,
look out for Somerset MRT as it is your nearest station.
It is located inside Orchard Gateway, on the third and forth floor.

This library is open for public. No admission fee required.
I do advise people to speak and walk softly when you're inside the premise.
Be considerate.


It's indeed a modern, chic and minimalistic all-in-one reading environment.
The design reflects and matches the colours of this modern city.

Divided into The Studio and The Loft,
Library @ Orchard covers more materials on lifestyle, design and the applied arts,
with a collection size of approximately 100,000 titles.

Got question? Need help?
There will be roving staffs on both levels. Feel free to approach them and ask anything about the library; from FAQs, book location and etc.


Not fancy on reading? How about audio video?
The library has a good amount of AV collections at the lower level. Feel free to play it using the video player and listen via headphones provided.


Reserve and collect service available?
Yes, readers are able to make book reservation online and self pick-up during operating hours at the lockers located by the library entrance. Easy?



The library also sets aside a space for creative exhibition at the lower level.
Not a big area, but sufficient to display a good 7 to 10 artworks.
They were having Chinese calligraphy exhibition there while we were there.
So beautifully written~

It was really cool to be able to visit this place. As well as Orchard Gateway.
There are lots of shops and things being sold here.
For instance, we went to Lady M Cafe for their high tea sets,
to bad there was a 30-minute queue.


Anyway, I do recommend to spend at least 1 to 2 hours here,
if you're first time visiting this shopping mall.
