Unique Features


  • Verging All Teens (V.A.T.)
    Jurong Regional Library is the first library in Singapore to offer a dedicated Teens Library service called 'Verging All Teens (V.A.T.)', a library created for teens by teens, to inspire teens. V.A.T. has a distinct collection of various genres of comics and graphic novels. V.A.T. also houses open-mic gigs and performances to showcase young talents to their peers.
  • Early Literacy Library
    Jurong Regional Library is also the first library in Singapore to house an Early Literacy Library. This library caters to two age groups: under 3 year olds and 4 to 6 year olds. The collection focuses on key areas vital to children’s learning and development. The books and audio-visual materials are available in the four official languages.
  • PIXEL Labs@NLB
