The Punggol Regional Library in Singapore opened its doors officially on 5th April 2023, providing residents with five floors of extensive and accessible features. The library, located in one of the youngest housing estates in the country, features spaces for teenagers, seniors, freelancers, and aspiring business owners. The library’s opening marks the completion of the first library in line with the National Library Board’s (NLB) LAB25 (Libraries and Archives Blueprint 2025) initiative, which aims to innovate and experiment in the field of public libraries constantly.
The Punggol Regional Library is a testament to the NLB’s journey of experimentation and innovation to provide better and wider access to learning and knowledge. NLB’s Chief Executive Officer, Ng Cher Pong, emphasized the library’s significance by stating, “This library is a breakthrough in our ongoing LAB25 journey of experimentation and innovation to provide better and wider access to learning and knowledge. We welcome more ideas and suggestions as we continue this journey with all our patrons, volunteers, and partners to shape our libraries and archives and to transform the future of learning.”
The library’s highlights include a Study Zone and Teenspace on Level 3, where teenagers can attend hands-on workshops and talks based on trending topics to spark their interest in reading. ExperienceIT on Level 4 is an immersive and interactive showcase of emerging technologies and innovations where adults, including seniors, can pick up new tech skills and knowledge. MakeIT, also on Level 4, allows seniors and adults to learn about and try fabrication technologies.
Aspiring business owners and freelancers can benefit from Launch, a business resource centre on Level 4 with masterclasses by industry experts, upskilling workshops, networking sessions, and pitch nights. Additionally, residents of Punggol can discover the area’s history dating back 200 years through multimedia showcases, such as The Lens of Literature on Level 3 and the Punggol Stories exhibition at Singaporium on Level 4.
The library also features spaces for children of all ages to learn through play on Levels 1 and 2, with the Toy Library and TinkerTots on Level 1 for children aged 6 years and below, and Spark!Lab™, a DIY tinkering space for children aged 7 to 12 years. The World and Us Zone on Levels 1 and 2 features reading materials from around the world on themes such as geography, culture, and migration for children aged 4 to 12. Persons with disabilities can also benefit from the library’s accessible features, such as the Accessible Collection with Braille texts and phonic readers on Level 1 and assistive technology devices throughout the library to help persons with disabilities perform functions that might otherwise be challenging.
Despite having access only to Levels 1 and 2 in the past two months and shorter opening hours, more than 90,000 patrons have visited the library since its soft opening in January. Families with young children have been enjoying the new features of Toy Library and Spark!Lab™ is especially popular. Persons with disabilities have also embraced the accessible features, including the Calm Pods, which provide quiet and safe spaces when needed.
The NLB will continue to fine-tune the offerings at the Punggol Regional Library with further feedback from patrons. This includes insights from recent public engagements hosted by Senior Ministers of State for Communications and Information, Mr Tan Kiat How and Dr Janil Puthucheary, to gather feedback from target users on Launch and Singaporium, respectively, before the official opening. Patrons are encouraged to visit the library, use its services, and provide feedback to the NLB.
NLB also invites patrons to join the Punggol Regional Library’s team of about 300 volunteers, who have been trained for roles such as helping patrons check out the new features of the library, sorting and shelving books, conducting storytelling for children, and more. Those who are interested in volunteering at the library may register here.
