Night At The Library

If you’ve always wanted to explore our public libraries past regular opening hours, here’s your chance.

As though your mugging sessions at the library was not already a nightmare, the National Library Building and Toa Payoh Public Library will be opening past midnight on 26 – 27 October 2018 as part of the Dark Tales event.

On this haunted trail, prepare to be spooked by creepy local urban legends. Try not to look back while you’re walking down the aisles of the library. You’ll never know what’s lurking in the shadows.

The National Library at Victoria Street will be hosting a “Night At The Library” event.

Both events will start from 9.30pm onwards and end at 1.30am and are free for the public to attend. The only catch is that participants for both events have to borrow four books or eBooks on the NLB Mobile App during the month of October 2018 to gain individual entry and must present the loan receipt for verification.
