Library@harbourfront Is The Largest Mall Library & Has A Coastal Theme To Boot
If you remember Daiso at VivoCity fondly, you’ll also remember the spectacular view just outside of the enclosed store.
We know you’ll miss stepping into the huge $2 haven but perhaps its departure from VivoCity was probably for the best.
Library@harbourfront which opens in Daiso’s former space on 12 Jan 2019, will offer an unobstructed view of Sentosa across the sea.
With such stunning surroundings, you won’t hesitate to put your phone away for some quiet downtime here.
Relax with a good book & seaside view
Bibliophiles would romanticise the idea of sitting by the sea at sunset with a book in hand because that perfect combination is too good to be true.
Now you might just be able to live that dream at library@harbourfront which has a reading lounge with a panoramic view of Sentosa.
The Straits Times posted a preview from an exclusive tour of the place on Facebook.
There are deck chairs lined up along a stretch of floor-to-ceiling windows so you can pretend you’re at the beach, except the air is cooler because air-con.
Reading a book in the early evening when the natural light shines through the window and bathes everything in a warm golden colour would be heavenly.
Imagine the spectacular sunsets you can catch.
Great space for groups
You wouldn’t want to keep such a beautiful place to yourself, so why not bring your family or friends over to lepak with you?
There’s bound to be something that they would like from the 200,000 titles on offer.
And the 460 seating spots available means everyone gets a comfy spot to chill in.
If you want to be more high tech, you can browse through e-Newspapers or surf the Internet at one of the individual learning pods.
Not just for reading
Poring over books for hours in the library can get dull, but that’s not all you can do at library@harbourfront.
With a variety of fun activities and interactive spaces, the library isn’t a fun place for bookworms only.
The virtual reality (VR) glasses in the programming zone can take you on realistic adventures across the world.
Life-sized animations flash across the walls in the Stories Come Alive room, making children’s storytelling sessions a much livelier experience.
You’ll get to see stories literally coming to life before your eyes, much like how comedian Hasan Minhaj does his shows.
Young children who may want to try a more active form of storytelling can do so at Tinker Truck, a maker space where they can let their creativity shine.
Activities for everyone
Whether you love books or have some sort of unexplained aversion to them, make a point to visit library@harbourfront soon.
There’s so much more to do than just read, which makes it an ideal place to chill at away from the city.
