Bukit Panjang Public Library was officially opened on 4 April 1998 by Dr Teo Ho Pin, then-Member of Parliament for Sembawang GRC (Bukit Panjang Division). It underwent extensive renovations and was newly re-opened on 1 July 2017 by Dr Yaacob Ibrahim, Minister for Communications and Information. Covering an area of 2,300 square metres, the expanded library is located within Bukit Panjang Plaza, a shopping centre in the heart of Bukit Panjang. It serves residents in the North West areas of Bukit Panjang and Bukit Timah.
The library consists of two separate wings, the Children's Zone and the Adults' & Teens' Zones. The library's design concept is inspired by changes to Bukit Panjang’s public transport access, including a direct connection to the new Downtown Line. With a focus on guiding patrons on their reading journeys, the coloured ribbons on the floor serve to help visitors find their way around the library. There will also be subject clusters indicated on the floor and ceiling to enable users to locate their preferred collection better. Central feature displays also serve as markers for their respective sections.
