With the recent heat and humidity, we’ve been staying indoors most days or hiding at the Early Literacy Library. Located at the basement of Jurong Regional Library, this newly renovated children’s corner which opened its doors on 10 April 2014, houses a collection of 60,000 books for children aged six and below.
What makes the Early Literacy Library different? For one, it’s filled with comfy reading nooks, educational toys and puzzles. There’s even a dedicated area where children can play dress-up!
What’s more, there’s a selection of books that features categories such as, Sense & Sensation, Concepts, Languages, Poetry & Rhymes and Emergent Reader to help parents select materials for their child. We simply enjoy flipping through the new books – the smell, the crisp pages…oh it just gets me giddy with excitement!
So, come on by the Jurong Regional Library and have a blast!
