Launched on 23 October 2014, by Minister for Communications and Information, Dr Yaacob Ibrahim, library@orchard is centred on lifestyle, design and the applied arts.

Divided into The Studio and The Loft, library@orchard is set to spoil visitors with its vast array of programmes and reading choices. Featuring a collection size of approximately 100, 000 titles, designated display areas and 3 programme zones, library@orchard works both as a community space and a contemplative cavern.
