Facts about Queenstown Public Library



...


Our History

The Queenstown Public Library is the oldest public library in Singapore. It was officially opened on 30 April 1970 by the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, who was Singapore's Prime Minister. On 7 October 1987, it became the first public library in the National Library Board's network to have its library services go online. The library was later closed for upgrading on 4 February 2003 and officially reopened on 31 October 2003 by Associate Professor Koo Tsai Kee, then Senior Parliamentary Secretary for the Ministry of Defence and Ministry of National Development, and Member of Parliament for Tanjong Pagar GRC.

Interesting Facts

The library is located in Queenstown, Singapore's first satellite town, which was named after Queen Elizabeth II in commemoration of her coronation in 1953.
Our library is housed in a gazetted heritage building which means that it cannot be demolished.
