To be frank, I am not a frequent borrower of books, and would rather buy so that I can spend my own sweet time to read and reread something. The last few times to this library was not to borrow books as well: to watch a photographic exhibition, attend a talk, hang out with friends to chat at Cafe Gallilee. This is what this library is all about, it is more than a library.
When I interviewed librarians and the public for their views, most expressed their loss and disappointment. Although there will be two new libraries at Orchard, the feeling will never be the same again. Where will the books go? Where will the exhibitions goes? Where will we go in these 3 years?
Will the library be replaced by little fashion shops (that are already everywhere), or more artas high end shop (that we do not really care about?). Profits versus reality. When the library first started at a mall like Ngee Ann City, perhaps it should have anticipated its future. Everything enbloc, even the library can enbloc.
Must all old things make way for the new? Some things can just never be replaced.
