Welcome to Sembawang Public Library! I’m Lai Meng, manager of the library. We’re a modern nautical and maritime-themed library for everyone! The library located in Sun Plaza features an image of the Sembawang jetty and other archival images of old Sembawang. Our children’s area incorporates container-shaped spaces inspired by the shipyard legacy of Sembawang, providing a fun area for children to read and learn!
