Daily commutes on Singapore’s public transport system will be an even more enriching experience from today as the National Library Board (NLB) and SMRT Corporation (SMRT) jointly launched Nodes at MRT train station platforms and bus interchanges. Through the QR codes found at these Nodes, commuters can easily access NLB’s rich collection of e-resources such as e-magazines and e-books.

The collaboration with SMRT is part of NLB’s ongoing efforts to bring the library experience beyond its premises, to make learning and discovery accessible in everyday spaces such as offices, malls, parks, and now public transport. This initiative also aligns with SMRT’s efforts to redefine public transport space for community activities, that will enrich the community’s wellbeing.

Location Of Nodes

The first two Nodes on SMRT’s network at Woodlands Integrated Transport Hub and Woodlands MRT station (North-South Line) has been launched on 12 September 2023 by Mr Baey Yam Keng, Senior Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment & Ministry of Transport. Following these, there will be Nodes at three other MRT train stations and two more bus interchanges around Singapore.

These Nodes, which will be available from September 2023 to March 2024, will provide SMRT commuters quick and convenient access to a selection of e-magazine titles such as TIME, National Geographic, PC World, Reader’s Digest, and NLB’s publication BiblioAsia, as well as NLB’s YouTube videos, and e-books. The titles were carefully curated to cater to commuters of all ages and backgrounds. Most of the content will be refreshed monthly so that commuters have something new to look forward to.

The Nodes can be found at the following SMRT train stations and bus interchanges:

  • Woodlands (NS9)
  • Bishan (NS17)
  • Orchard (NS22)
  • Tiong Bahru (EW17)
