    Jurong Regional Library is the first library in Singapore to offer a dedicated Teens Library service called 'Verging All Teens (V.A.T.)', a library created for teens by teens, to inspire teens. V.A.T. has a distinct collection of various genres of comics and graphic novels. V.A.T. also houses open-mic gigs and performances to showcase young talents to their peers.

    Jurong Regional Library is also the first library in Singapore to house an Early Literacy Library. This library caters to two age groups: under 3 year olds and 4 to 6 year olds. The collection focuses on key areas vital to children’s learning and development. The books and audio-visual materials are available in the four official languages.

Library Manager

Ms. Lim Lee Ping

Hi everyone, I’m Lee Ping, manager of Jurong Regional Library.

As a regional library, we cater to all age groups and I’m sure you’ll find something to interest you. We have special spaces for the very young ones – our Early Literacy Library’s collection focuses on five key areas that are vital to children’s learning and development – and the Verging All Teens at Level 4 where teens have over 1,200 sqm of space to call their own. Keen to do some tinkering? Visit us at PIXEL Labs and experiment with different tools and hardware kits to learn, create and share your handiworks.

See you soon!
