Queenstown Community Library was officially opened on 30 April 1970 by the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, who was Singapore's Prime Minister then. The library was closed for upgrading work on 4 February 2003 and officially reopened on 31 October 2003 by Associate Professor Koo Tsai Kee, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for the Ministry of Defence and Ministry of National Development, and Member of Parliament for Tanjong Pagar GRC.
Covering an area of 3,349 square metres, the library was the Republic’s first full-time branch library. On 7 October 1987, Queenstown Community Library became the first public library in the National Library Board’s network to have its library services put online. The library serves the residents of Alexandra, Bukit Timah, Buona Vista, Clementi, Commonwealth, Dover, Ghim Moh, Holland, Pasir Panjang, Queenstown, Tanglin Halt and Ulu Pandan.
