Yishun Superhero Library


Bookworms can relate – nothing can replace getting lost in a dystopian book, or that rewarding feeling when you’ve learnt a new word from reading a novel. If you have kiddos at home who feel the same, then a day trip to Yishun Superhero Library might be worth planning.

Set at the void deck of Block 436 at Yishun Avenue 11, this community library is easy to spot – just look out for the wooden shelves and tables that hold a slew of books. To date, they’ve amassed around 1,000 books thanks to donations from the public.

That’s not to say that all the books are in English – there are also Mandarin ones so your child won’t grow up as jiak kantang. Older kids can look through the comics selection too, and little tots can take a peek at the picture books. Students can also prep for upcoming exams with the various textbooks and 10 year series for PSLE and O Levels available.

As the saying goes, “Sharing is caring”. The library sports a “take one, read one, return one” sign to encourage participants to donate their own pre-loved books. Take this opportunity to clear your shelves, and let other readers experience your books. Those who wish to drop off their donations can message the team via their Facebook page at least 2 days in advance.
