National Library Board

The National Library Board is a statutory board under the Ministry of Communications and Information of the Singapore Government.

Our libraries and archives promote reading, learning, information literacy and an interest in Singapore’s history and heritage. In 2019, we reached 7 in 10 residents in Singapore through our services, programmes and spaces.

Besides the National Library and the National Archives of Singapore, we have a total of 27 libraries in our network, comprising 25 public libraries owned and operated by NLB and 2 partners’ libraries. Our public libraries bring in more than 24 million visitors annually who borrow more than 30 million library materials and attend more than 25,000 programmes.
