Central Public Library is home to My Tree House, the World's 1st Green Library for Kids. This library is the first in the world to be steered by green principles in all facets from design and infrastructure to collection and programming. Created in partnership with City Developments Limited (CDL), this unique eco space facilitates environmental literacy in children.
My Tree House was opened on 31 May 2013 by Dr Yaacob Ibrahim, Minister for Communications and Information. It was awarded the Green Mark Platinum Award by the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore in the same month.
Tree House and Green Features
Forming the centrepiece of the eco library, the striking tree house canopy is constructed with recycled bottles while its steps and surrounding platform are built with recycled timber. Other green features in the library include refurbished book shelves, carpet made from recycled materials and energy-efficient LED lighting.
