Q. Why should I join the NLB (National Library Board)?
...and how do I become a member?
The National Library Board (NLB) of Singapore provides hundreds of digital resources free to citizens and library members
PR - Permanent Residents - and people with a FIN (Foreign Identification Number) -- i.e., a green card holder must pay for an annual individual library card in order to get access.
There is a one-time registration fee of $10.50 for both PR and Foreigners as well as an annual foreign membership fee of $42.80. NB: You need to bring your passport and enough money (e.g., $54) on an EZ-Link card or NETS card. They don’t accept cash.
You can search the NLB catalog for books in any of their 22+ branches
