Easy Reading

We should take advantage of this !


SFK has always been beguiled by books, magazines and the audio-visual medium and the National Library Board (NLB) Mobile App makes it very convenient to access a wealth of material. Available on iOS and Android mobile devices, the App provides convenient access to library information and transactions.


A my Library ID account allows library members to access all NLB e-Services – (Singapore citizens and PR’s can apply for membership online with their SingPass ID’s) – which include loans, instant alerts for reservations, reminders on loans, borrowing books via the app on a smartphone, feedback, queries, recommendations and more.


Read more. Read widely. Read together  is the focus of the National Reading Movement and it makes available a wealth of material through the NLB, to loan and peruse.
