Hwa Chong Library’s 100th Anniversary Gift to the School

09 Apr 2019

The Hwa Chong Library unveiled a newly revamped Jing Xian Library on 12 March 2019 ahead of the school’s 100th Founders’ Day. A result of an entire year’s envisioning, planning and consultations with the school’s stakeholders, the new library aims to encourage more library goers to enjoy reading and using the new library’s facilities.

Several highlights of the new library include a dedicated performance space, a cozy corner with a wide selection of board games, exhibition spaces, and multimedia areas for ICT-based lessons. The open and participatory nature of the newly revamped college library reimagines libraries of the future not just as an intellectual spaces; but also as spaces of creative possibilities with integrated classrooms that support a greater diversity of learning and research styles.

Designed with numerous collaborative and creative possibilities in mind, the renovation of the Jing Xian library reflects the changing nature of 21st Century education and embodies Hwa Chong’s continued journey towards educational innovation and excellence.
