Do you miss going to the national library? Whether to study, date or pretend to study?

As the Covid-19 situation in Singapore moves towards a more positive direction, more and more places are going to be opened to the public.

And guess what? National Libraries just announced that they’re going to resume normal operating hours.

Operating Hours To Resume From 1 Sep 2020

On 28 Aug 2020, the National Library Board took to their Facebook page to give book lovers in Singapore the good news.

From 1 Sep 2020 onwards, they’re going to resume normal operating hours.

All public libraries and the National Archives of Singapore will operate from 10am to 9pm.

Libraries located in shopping malls will operate from 11am to 9pm and The Former Ford Factory will operate from 9am to 5.30pm.

Hopefully, with longer hours, they hope that more people will be able to enjoy their services.

Covid-19 Safe Management Measures Still In Place

If you’re someone who loves going to the library to study because it’s more conducive or that uncle who likes reading newspaper there, I’ve got bad news for you.

While operating hours have gone back to normal, everything else hasn’t, including safe management measures.

Previously, other than shorter operating hours, only a limited number of people are allowed to be in the library at any point of time and visitors are limited to half an hour per visit.

The library operated like a caipng stall during Phase One; you can’t read within the library (dine-in) but you can borrow books within the timeframe and leave (takeaway).

Newspapers and multimedia stations will still be unavailable and the seating and study areas will remain shut, so if you want to study, home is the way to go.

All programmes, guided tours, and events will remain on hold.

With the extension of hours, it also means more people will go to the library.

If you don’t want to be stuck waiting outside the library, you can check the NLB mobile app or head to NLB’s website to get real-time information on the crowds before making your way out of the home.

And if you’re not a person who has to touch and smell a physical book, the NLB app also has plenty of e-books and resources for you to borrow right in the comfort of your home.

Other rules like mask-wearing, SafeEntry, temperature-taking and safe distancing will also be enforced.
