Housed at Woodlands Civics Centre right opposite Causeway Point, Woodlands Regional Library is 4 storeys high and a split-level basement, which holds a 250-seat auditorium. Some unique features of the library include the Asian Children Literature Collection and the Silver Infocomm Junction, the latter being a space in which adults aged 50 and above can learn about basic computing skills, social networking, and how to access National Library Board's eResources.

The ultimate mugging cave

Woodlands Regional Library had become my second home during the exams period, with me spending an average of 12 hours each day cooped up in there mugging my head off.

In the crucial October to November period, it became the second home of many other people too - I had to join a snaking queue 15 minutes before opening just to secure a seat. My friends and I had a ‘territory’ then - on the second level near the Tamil Collection. I’ve tried many other locations, but there proved the most comfortable and conducive. The only problem I had was that the tables provided were too low for the high chairs, which leads to sore and painful necks and backs after a few hours. Try getting the wall seats - they’re the perfect height, comfortable, and are free of distractions.

As my A Levels come to an end, I bid goodbye to my second home, and to all the familiar faces I’ve grown acquainted with in my 2 months of mugging - the Lee Kuan Yew lookalike who comes in every evening without fail, and the librarians that knock on your table when you’re asleep. See you guys when University starts, maybe!
