Facts about library@harbourfront


Our History

Set against a splendid view of Sentosa, library@harbourfront was officially opened by Mr S Iswaran, then Minister for Communications and Information, on 12 January 2019. We are a reading and learning destination with a collection of 200,000 volumes in two distinct zones – one for adults and teens, and the other for children. We provide conducive spaces and enhanced services that suit all reading and learning needs.

Our library adopted a coastal theme with waves and colours of blue and green for its design elements. We want to invite you to look beyond the horizon and explore, discover, and seek new knowledge.  

Interesting Facts
