Our National Library rocks!
I must say we Singaporeans who love to read are a lucky bunch. Our National Library actually rocks big time!
Very good. Very impressive. Very nice.
The selection of books is fantastic. There's something for everyone. You can borrow up to 4 books at a time for 11 days at any branch of the NLB. And you can return the books at any branch as well. The NLB has a website that allows you to search for books, reserve them. You can also download e-books and audio books!
My wife loves this! These days she's always reading from her PDA or listening to an audio book from her MP3 player. Goodbye to Sunny Bookshop!
And recently I realised NLB stocks graphic novels as well. Just borrowed "Fax from Sarajevo" by Joe Kubert, Chris Ware's "Jimmy Corrigan: The smartest kid on earth" and Will Eisner's "The Name of the Game" last night! This is fantastic!
I'm beginning to see all the good things about living in Singapore. Great parks to do inline skating. Great library to borrow your favourite media. It's all there. And best of all, it's all free. (Of course it's from our tax dollars but hey it's money well spent!)
