Skywatch Friday - Nex

One of my favourite place is to head to the library. Serangoon Library on the top of the roof top of Nex Shopping Mall is the latest library to be open. It was open last week. The library is rather small but the books there are all very new.

I did not stay long in the library cause it was so noisy with so many children because of the school holiday. The children section and the adult section in the library are very close to each other.

I prefer other libraries where the children section are separated from the adult section where one can read in silence.

But the serangoon library is very convenient cause is on the rooftop of the mall and also above the MRT Station. So if you just want to borrow your books you can head here but if you want some silence reading, do it after the school holidays.



Also above the roof top of the NEX mall is a children playground with waterpool and fountain. Great place for the kids to play. But the playground will be closed if it rain heavily.



I think this is the first mall with play area for dogs. This the dog park on the rooftop of NEX mall. Dogs are not allowed in shopping mall in Singapore unless the dog are those who aid the blind. Owners have to use separate lift to access the rooftop with their dogs. There's a restaurant for pets too on the rooftop.

Very interesting information with lovely photos. Mall are cropping up every where. We have two malls in Kochi but not as good as yours with roof top library and a restaurant for pets.
Best wishes,
Joseph

How nice to be in a library and spend some quiet time there. Close proximity to a kids library will certainly have some noise filtering through.

I used to like Jurong Pt when the library was in the Mall. Then they went a block away, no parking. Guess, i left then,luacstes
