Library at the Orchard to close
Come December 2007, the "Library at the Orchard" which is located at Ngee Ann City will cease to exist. National Library Board has decided to move out when its lease ends. Mainly due to rising rental cost, as Ngee Ann City is located at the heart of Orchard Road. The Library @ Orchard was started in 1999, during the height of the dot com boom, and was one of the first "high-tech" library. It is the first lifestyle library designed especially to appeal to young Singaporeans aged 18 to 35 years. Library will re-site to *scape -Youth Community Space in Orchard. It will target mainly to the younger audience, age between 15 and early 20s. *scape is located just next to Orchard Cineleisure, and it will be a hub for youth cultural and community activites. The library's services at *scape will be more computer-based and it will feature a collection of hip magazines, DVDS and CDs.
