Ever wondered what lurked behind the bookshelves after dark?
Beware, for what’s familiar and mundane might just surprise you.
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.
And the Toa Payoh Public Library will host the “Dark Tales: Reaper’s Trail” 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.
Participants who attend both events can redeem a gift.
As there are variations in operating hours, visitors are advised to check the following sites for more details.
