National Library, Singapore

National Library, Singapore

Something old, something new

I mentioned in the last post that the old National Library was demolised and a new one was rebuilt next to Bras Basah Complex in June 2005.

Keeping up with the trend, there are lots of glass in the new building, several gardens and viewing galleries.

Of the many gardens in the building, only two are open to the public. It is nice to know that 5,000 red bricks from the old library had been saved and form one wall in one of the outdoor garden.

If you have a chance, come visit there. Not only to read but just enjoy the view of the city from the several viewing galleries.

Till next time, have a great week ahead!
