JOINT MESSAGE BY CHAIRMAN & CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

MRS ELAINE NGChief Executive Officer

MS YEOH CHEE YANChairman

It has been a fulfilling year for NLB. We continue to enjoy the goodwill and trust of our customers and partners.

Our latest customer satisfaction survey conducted in September 2014 saw an increase in satisfaction level from 4.38 to 4.39, out of a maximum score of 4.50. Ninety percent of respondents said that they are satisfied and happy with NLB’s services. We are glad with this encouraging result in 2014, which is a testament to our commitment to service excellence at all levels, and spurs us on in our drive to better serve the public.

Our public libraries took a leap forward with the opening of our first two Next Generation public libraries with their modern designs, innovative digital services and customised learning areas. This is part of NLB’s “Libraries for Life”, a 10-year strategic development plan to develop Readers for Life, Learning Communities, and a Knowledgeable Nation.

The National Library continued growing its collection with the acquisition of World War II diaries and pre-war newspapers. Southeast Asian maps were added to its collection and proudly showcased through a publication titled Visualising Space, and an exhibition named “Geo|Graphic: Celebrating Maps and Their Stories”. The Singapore Memory Project successfully funded 72 projects through its irememberSG fund, which captured personalised memories through various mediums and platforms.

The National Archives of Singapore (NAS) reached out to members of the public through its Citizen Archivist Project, engaging them to transcribe old handwritten records and caption archival photos online. NAS now has a total of over 1.11 million items in its Archives Online and Oral History portals.

These efforts were underpinned by the introduction of a powerful search engine which enables users to search across all our physical and digital resources. Our libraries and archives are custodians of rich information and content, and we are continually innovating ways to connect our users with our resources.

Spaces of Discovery

Last year, we launched several new spaces to encourage people of all walks of life to continue learning and discovering. The much-anticipated library@orchard was re-opened after seven years. Built around the theme, Design is for Everyone, it carries the largest public library collection on design and applied arts. We worked with students and lecturers from Singapore Polytechnic on design prototypes, and sought public feedback on its design, collection and services—a first for a public library.

We re-opened Sembawang Public Library with a new look based on a nautical theme, paying homage to Sembawang’s maritime history. It is the second public library in Singapore, after Jurong Regional Library, to feature a designated early literacy collection.

Young ones benefited from the expansion of our mobile library services. Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple generously donated two vehicles to our fleet. Each year, these ‘mini-MOLLYs’ bring books and library programmes to 48,000 children from 160 preschools.

Spaces catering to working adults were created. In partnership with the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA), we launched the LLiBrary which carries Continuing Education and Training (CET) materials and resources that focus on career development and the upgrading of skills.

We worked with the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) to introduce Smart Work Centres at Jurong Regional Library, Geylang East Public Library and Toa Payoh Public Library. Individuals using the Centres can enjoy easy access to the libraries’ collection of books, information resources, audio-visual materials and programmes, including those organised by the Centres, to enhance their working and learning experience.

The community had a hand in setting up spaces for learning, too. Through the Read@Community scheme, community groups tapped on our expertise to set up 150 reading corners, close to the people they serve.

Discovering through Technology

Our users’ needs and habits are evolving. The growing popularity of mobile technology around the world has changed the way people live, work and play. We take these needs and trends into account when developing new services, and ways of delivering our content to users.

We introduced the NLB Mobile app, which allows users to borrow books by scanning bar codes with their smartphones. The app can also be used to search the library catalogue, find activities at the nearest library, borrow items for one’s family members, and reserve and renew items.

For the convenience of users who are unable to be at our libraries during opening hours, we have also introduced self-service reservation lockers at library@orchard and Sembawang Public Library, where users can pick up their reserved titles beyond operating hours. We will be rolling out this service to other libraries.

With the introduction of e-reading stations for browsing newspapers and accessing other digital resources, and our new Quick Reads service where users can easily browse our ebook catalogues, get recommendations and borrow ebooks just by scanning a QR code with their smartphones, library patrons can enjoy library services in many more ways.

The new OneSearch is a unified search engine for the National Library, Public Libraries and NAS’ collections. It includes books, magazines and audio-visual materials from our library catalogue, as well as e-resources such as digitised newspapers, local music, literary works, manuscripts, speeches and biographies.

Discovering Together

Our reading programmes continue to bring people together. Two of our most popular programmes have achieved milestones, with both READ! Singapore and kidsREAD celebrating their 10th anniversaries. Since its inception, kidsREAD has reached out to more than 29,000 children. From this year onwards, we have extended kidsREAD to children from families with a gross household income of up to S$6,000 a month, up from the previous S$3,500, allowing more children to take part.

We have also reached out to the very young through our Early Literacy Library, and to seniors through the “Time of Your Life – Learning Journeys for the 50plus” festival organised with the Council for Third Age. A Mother Tongue Language Festival has also been organised for library patrons of different ethnic backgrounds to celebrate reading together.

We introduced the Reading Innovation Award for preschools that have specially developed creative reading programmes to inspire and foster a passion for reading among young children. The awards are based on the preschool centres’ creativity and innovativeness; engagement with parents and the community; and their programmes’ effectiveness and impact.

On the information literacy front, the S.U.R.E. (Source, Understand, Research and Evaluate) campaign entered its second year. We worked with the Ministry of Education to integrate information literacy content into the secondary school syllabuses. Since January 2013, over 9,000 teachers have been trained in information literacy concepts and skills.

Schools also benefited from the expansion of our Read@School initiative to promote reading among primary and secondary school students. We now have over 300 schools participating in the programme.

NAS’ Archives Online database continued to grow, with over 120,000 photographs, over 1,100 oral history interviews and over 14,000 audio-visual records uploaded in 2014.

Rediscovering our History and Heritage

The Singapore Memory Project (SMP) started as a nation-wide initiative by NLB and is gradually evolving into a community-driven one. Its irememberSG Fund supported 72 projects by organisations and individuals to collect, interpret, and showcase Singapore memories. These projects are in the form of exhibitions, books, films and other products, and will be showcased over the course of Singapore’s golden jubilee.

We are grateful to the British Library, National Archives of the United Kingdom, the Netherlands’ Leiden University and the Utrecht University Library for loaning some of the maps.

Through the Citizen Archivist Project, members of the public are now able enhance the description of archival records and make them more searchable, by transcribing handwritten records and captioning photos.

NAS co-published a reprint of The Battle For Merger, which comprises transcripts of a series of radio talks by Singapore’s founding Prime Minister Mr Lee Kuan Yew in 1961, on the political struggle over merger with the Federation of Malaya.

We grieved with the nation when Mr Lee passed away, and joined in the nationwide effort to commemorate his legacy. NAS provided over 2,000 audio-visual clips and over 1,600 photos to support exhibitions, television programmes, videos and other tribute materials created during the week of national mourning, some of which were screened at the 18 community tribute sites. We set up memory collection booths at all our public libraries. We also curated an exhibition on Mr Lee’s public life and his inspiring and thought-provoking quotes at the National Library Building, as well as showcased a gallery of books by and about Mr Lee at our libraries. We are now in the process of digitally archiving the tributes that were collected from our public libraries and the various community sites.

Towards Future Discoveries

We will continue to transform our users’ experience and interaction with our libraries. Pasir Ris Public Library will re-open with new features by the end of 2015. The new Tampines Regional Library and Bedok Public Library will be our first libraries in integrated hubs. We will also be revamping other public libraries over the next five years, and look forward to the forthcoming Punggol Regional library.

As we continue to redesign our libraries, we will introduce new technologies which will create immersive reading experiences inside physical library spaces. Books and event recommendations will be made more personalised for our users through smart displays and mobile devices. We will also extend our presence in spaces outside the libraries through digital displays at bus stops and MRT stations.

Citizens will be treated to inspirational content from NAS’ rich holdings through a new constitutional gallery, which will display iconic records of Singapore’s nation-building. There are plans to refurbish NAS and Memories at Old Ford Factory in the coming years.

We could not have achieved all of these in FY2014 without the passionate support of our partners, donors, volunteers and international friends. We would also like to thank our board members and staff for their contributions. We will continue serving our customers better and ensure our libraries and archives remain well-loved spaces of learning and discovery.

Showcasing Singapore to the World

In celebration of Singapore’s Golden Jubilee, NLB is presenting about 300 books to each of the 40 overseas libraries in 2015 under our “SG50 Gift of Books” project. These libraries include those in Australia, China, India, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and our neighbouring ASEAN countries.

The books, about Singapore or by Singapore authors, will create greater awareness of our nation’s unique heritage and cityscape among an international audience. They include topics on Singapore’s architecture, biodiversity, economic development, literature, and the arts and culture.

The National Library of India was the first to receive these books in February 2015 from Mrs Mary Tan, wife of President Tony Tan Keng Yam. This was followed by the National Library of China.

NATIONAL LIBRARY OF SINGAPORE

National Library of Singapore

The National Library preserves the cultural and literary heritage of Singapore. It provides an aggregated source of information, especially information about Singapore, through a vast array of reference materials, online resources and campaigns. We continue to expand and enrich our collections to better serve our users. The National Library is also the custodian of the nation’s collective memory through the Singapore Memory Project (SMP).

Singapore’s History and Music Made Accessible

NLB has launched HistorySG and the refurbished MusicSG to widen the pool of eResources available to the community.

HistorySG is an online resource providing information on significant events in Singapore’s history from 1299 to the present. Launched on 28 May 2014, HistorySG has more than 500 articles on politics and government, economy, society, arts and culture, and external relations. HistorySG also features photographs, videos, audio clips and newspaper articles to provide users with a more holistic experience.

To make Singapore’s rich music heritage more accessible to the community, we have redesigned our MusicSG portal with a new interface and expanded its collection. In addition to family favourite tunes, the digital music archive has been updated with infographics as well as prized scores penned by Cultural Medallion recipients. To engage new and younger audiences, MusicSG also added the Indie music genre on the portal, and showcased a series of video profiles of Singapore independent artistes.

We also published “Singapore Soundscape: Musical Renaissance of a Global City” to document Singapore’s music heritage. The book charts our nation’s history of traditional and popular music, and expounds on how Singapore’s music culture has evolved alongside larger political and economic changes.

The First Dedicated Library for Working Professionals

Together with the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA), we opened the first library for Continuing Education and Training in November 2014. The LLiBrary is located at the Lifelong Learning Institute at Eunos Road, and caters to working professionals interested in improving their skills and career development. It also supports campus educators and students from the institute.

    Be Smart. Be S.U.R.E.

    In a world of information richness, how can we be sure of the information we read? S.U.R.E. is a national initiative launched to equip the community with information literacy skills to empower them to make discerning judgments in their quest for information.

    S - Source. Look at the origins and ask “Is it trustworthy?”
    U - Understand what you’re reading. Search for clarity.
    R - Research by digging deeper. Go beyond the initial source.
    E - Evaluate by finding the balance. Exercise fair judgement.

    Since its launch in 2013, the S.U.R.E. initiative has trained over 9,000 teachers on information literacy concepts and skills. We launched a campaign in 2014 with four community personalities, Adrian Pang, Vernetta Lopez, Dee Kosh and MunahHirzi Official (by Munah Bagharib & Hirzi Zulkiflie), to raise awareness of information literacy. Members of the public also had a chance to interact with invited guest speakers including Professor Nassim Taleb (in collaboration with the Public Service Commission) and Nobel & Millennium Technology laureates Michael Grätzel, Tim Hunt, Kurt Wüthrich and Michael Levitt (in collaboration with the National Research Foundation).

    Mapping from Our Past to Our Future

    As a repository of Singapore’s literary heritage and knowledge, the National Library acquires and preserves rare materials and resources that document our history and identity. Finding new and interesting ways to engage Singaporeans in exploring and experiencing our history, we presented our first-ever festival on maps and mapping from 15 January 2015 to 19 July 2015.

    Titled “Geo|Graphic: Celebrating Maps and Their Stories”, the exhibition was launched by Minister for Communications and Information Dr Yaacob Ibrahim, and showcased rare historical maps that offered visitors a glimpse into Singapore’s journey through the centuries. The festival was made up of two exhibitions. The “Land of Gold and Spices” exhibition featured never-before-seen maps of the region where various European cartographers have mapped the variant names of Singapore like Cingatola, Cina Pula, Sincapura and Singaporea, in different places. The “Island of Stories: Singapore Maps” exhibition displayed post-19th century maps of Singapore that captured the changes of our evolving city landscape. Four art installations by Singapore artists related to the theme of mapping were also featured as part of this festival, and an interactive MAPS! exhibition was held at four public libraries.

    In conjunction with the festival, we also launched the book, “Visualising Space: Maps of Singapore and the Region”, which features essays by scholars and our staff about maps in NLB’s collections.

    As part of our collection, the National Library acquired the David Parry Southeast Asian Map Collection comprising 254 maps from the 15th to 19th century. The collection includes maps by famed cartographers such as Abraham Ortelius, Sebastian Munster, and Willem Blaeu.

    These maps were featured in the Geo|Graphic exhibition and are available on BookSG, a digitised collection of books and other printed materials related to Singapore and Southeast Asia from the National Library and its partner institutions.

    Capturing Our Nation’s Collective Memory

    Memories link us to events and experiences in our past that shaped our present. Preserving our nation’s collective memory serves to promote and foster stronger community bonds and greater social cohesion, and to strengthen the Singaporean identity. Supported by the Ministry of Communications and Information and led by NLB, the Singapore Memory Project (SMP) is a whole-of-nation movement that aims to capture and document precious moments and personal memories related to Singapore. Its irememberSG Fund initiative encourages and empowers individuals and organisations to develop content and projects that will collect, interpret, contextualise and showcase Singapore memories, leading up to our Golden Jubilee.

        Remembering Singapore’s Founding Prime Minister

        In honour of the memory of our founding Prime Minister, the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, the National Library held a specially curated exhibition on the key milestones of Mr Lee’s public life alongside some of his inspiring quotes. We also put together a special book gallery featuring a curated collection of books, archival photos, newspaper articles and recordings of Mr Lee’s speeches. Members of the public were also able to pen their tributes at the memory collection booths at our public libraries, as well as on our Singapore Memory Project portal. Tributes collected at our public libraries and the various community sites will be digitised and archived on the portal.

        In celebration of our nation’s pioneers, SMP also launched two campaigns titled “The Greatest Gift of a Generation” and “KopiTimes”. The first campaign captured the memories of pioneering Singaporeans through 20 video interviews conducted by younger Singaporeans, while KopiTimes reached out to seniors with stories to share at local coffee shops. These campaigns showcased precious stories of our pioneers for future generations, and encouraged intergenerational conversations within the community.

          Pioneers featured in the videos included:

          The Tok Tok Man, a community performer at the Old Airport Road hawker centre

          Mr C. Kunalan, 5 Asian Games and 15 SEA Games medallist

          Mrs Joyce Foster, who shared the Pernankan culture, customs and culinary delights with her son

          Mr Lee Ah Lek, who recalled how he was selected to be part of the Singapore Military Forces in 1955

          Public Libraries of Singapore

          The public libraries continue to promote lifelong learning and provide a wealth of information through their rich and diverse collections. Reaching out to the community, the 26 public libraries are adopting more distinctive and unique themes that cater to their users’ needs.

          Our Next-Generation Libraries

          Our libraries have always been community spaces that encourage the love of reading, bonding between families and communities, and the pursuit of learning. Today, they have become vibrant spaces with an ever-expanding range of collections, features, programmes and services to bring a whole new experience to the next generation of library users. Many of our libraries now have their own distinctive flavour and style.

          library@orchard is Back

          library@orchard opened in October 2014 with a brand new library experience and concept. Themed “Design is for Everyone”, the library features creative spaces for visitors to try their hand at design and share ideas with other design enthusiasts. The library also carries our largest collection on design and the applied arts.

          A first for our public libraries, library@orchard sought feedback and suggestions from the public through the Design-Thinking process to develop its design, collection and services together with the Singapore Polytechnic Design-Thinking Team. The library’s unique features include Book Trees, integrated displays that feature selected books, artworks, videos and other related content to inspire visitors on a particular type or style of design; and cocoons, pod-inspired seating that offer visitors personal and conducive spaces for creative thinking and learning.

          To enhance the library experience, library@orchard also debuted a digital concierge and directory, which provide information on the library’s collections and happenings, assist visitors in navigating around the library, and offer customer service help.

          Sembawang Public Library

          Opened in November 2014, Sembawang Public Library was revamped to better meet the needs of young families living in the area. We consulted library users and gathered their feedback on how the spaces could cater to their needs. The library’s nautical design, inspired by the area’s rich shipyard and shipbuilding history, provides spaces modelled after shipping containers where parents can read together with their children.

          Sembawang Public Library also carries our second Early Literacy collection, specially catered for children aged six and below. Parents can find books – focusing on the five key areas of playing, talking, singing, reading and writing – to help with their children’s learning and development.

          For greater convenience, Sembawang Public Library and library@orchard are the first two libraries with a self-service reservation system where library users can collect reserved titles from designated lockers beyond the libraries’ opening hours.

            Our Library of Many Firsts!

            Our pioneering library, Queenstown Public Library, has been listed as one of the 38 heritage markers in Queenstown, Singapore’s oldest estate. The library was also gazetted for conservation by the Urban Redevelopment Authority in 2013. It was opened on 30 April 1970 by the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, founding Prime Minister of Singapore.

            QUPL is a garden-themed library with a focus on green-related programmes. It has a community garden under the Community in Bloom project by NParks, where members of the community come together to look after the garden.

            The Next Five Years

            Libraries in Pasir Ris, Tampines, Bedok and Bukit Panjang will be revamped as part of NLB’s plan to upgrade our public libraries, while Punggol residents will get a new regional library.

            New features in the libraries include quiet and reflective areas for adults; collaborative spaces for community learning; high-energy, interactive spaces for young readers; as well as more inter-generational learning spaces. There will also be e-reading stations and e-devices to facilitate a multi-sensory learning experience.

            Each library will be designed to reflect the characteristic of its neighbourhood. Pasir Ris Public Library’s concept will focus on leisure and rejuvenation of the mind. Tampines Regional Library will feature a modern-day kampong concept and include a culinary studio. Bedok Public Library will create a dynamic and inclusive sanctuary with access to adjacent outdoor activity areas. These libraries will also have improved access for the elderly and the disabled.

            Two smaller mobile libraries have joined our big mobile library bus, “MOLLY”, to bring the joy of reading to children. These new “mini MOLLYs” serve kindergartens and childcare centres in HDB estates. In addition to bringing more than 1,500 books to the preschools, each mini MOLLY also conducts activities such as storytelling, arts and craft and sing-a-long sessions. The smaller mobile libraries also visit welfare homes that cannot be reached by the bigger MOLLY.

            Art for You and Me

            Bringing the arts closer to the community, we launched two Community Arts and Culture Nodes at the Jurong Regional Library and Tampines Regional Library together with the National Arts Council last year. Residents who visit these libraries can enjoy a year-round line up of art-related programmes.

            Jurong Regional Library holds a spread of live performances and visual arts workshops. The library’s youth space, Verging All Teens, also showcases the talents of young people and emerging arts groups on a monthly platform. Over at Tampines Regional Library, our “ArtSEEN” node initiative organises visual and applied arts activities for all age groups, such as workshops on watercolour painting and pinhole photography.

              The SMART Way To Work

              Jurong Regional Library, Geylang East Public Library and Toa Payoh Public Library have joined the network of Smart Work Centres around Singapore! Operated by global flexible workshop provider Regus, and in collaboration with the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore, these workspaces offer professional office facilities closer to home. This convenience promotes greater productivity and a better work-life balance.

              Located within the libraries, the spaces also leverage on the libraries’ collection of books, information resources, audio-visual materials and programmes to enhance the working and learning experience.

              Rediscovering the Love for Reading

              This year, two of our reading programmes celebrated 10 years of nurturing and rekindling the love for reading among the community. We also expanded our outreach to include workshops for active seniors and specialised programmes in Chinese, Malay and Tamil.

              We Turned 10

              Read! Fest 2014 was held in June to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Read! Singapore. Themed “Books That Moved Me”, the inaugural month-long festival included literary trails of children’s books by Singapore writers, a showcase of 40 redesigned book covers of familiar classics and book parties with Singapore authors. Reading enthusiasts also attended film screenings, drama performances, interactive storytelling sessions and book-inspired pop-up craft parties.

              The Read! Fest 2014 anthology, “Tenacity: Stories Built to Last”, compiled favourites from previous years’ anthologies, as well as a selection of specially-commissioned poems by Singapore writers. The festival also featured a recommended novel in each of the four official languages, and 24 recommended children’s books and three East-Asian folktales selected by the Youth Book Selection Committee. These stories are available on eReads.

              The Singapore Memory Project also debuted a series of heart-warming videos where adults were reunited with the books they used to own as children.

              We also celebrated the 10th anniversary of kidsREAD with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in October 2014. kidsREAD is a nation-wide reading programme for children from less-privileged families. At the event, the children were enthralled by the Prime Minister’s storytelling of the Balinese folktale, “Go to Sleep, Gecko!”. 10 longest-serving volunteers and 10 longest-running kidsREAD clubs were also honoured for their dedication at the event.

              To nurture and sustain the reading habit of young children from pre-school into primary school, we expanded the programme’s curriculum from one to five years in 2013, allowing children who join at age four to continue until they are eight.

              Nurturing a Love for Reading and Learning

              NLB launched three programmes and initiatives to share the joy of reading among the young and old.

              We organised our inaugural Mother Tongue Language Festival in September 2014. The week-long festival featured over 50 exciting programmes including a Malay opera, a Tamil modern musical street performance, a workshop on Wayang Kulit puppet-making and Chinese cross-talk and dramatisation. These programmes engaged the preschool and primary school students and encouraged them to read in their mother tongue languages.

              NLB also launched our inaugural Reading Innovation Award in March 2015. The award recognises preschools that have developed creative reading programmes to inspire and foster a passion for reading among young readers. This award will be given out every five years to preschools for their creativity and innovativeness, engagement with parents and the community, and the effectiveness and impact of their reading programmes.

              To encourage lifelong learning and an active lifestyle, NLB and the Council for Third Age launched the first month-long seniors’ festival in October 2014. “Time of Your Life – Learning Journeys for the 50plus” offered seniors a series of talks and workshops in four languages on topics such as health, wellness, finance, and the arts across 10 public libraries. A 6-month roving exhibition, “Curious Minds, Vibrant Lives”, toured Tampines Regional Library, Jurong Regional Library, Ang Mo Kio Public Library, Bedok Public Library, Jurong West Public Library and library@chinatown to highlight the importance of active aging and keeping one’s mind sharp in the golden years.

              NATIONAL ARCHIVES OF SINGAPORE

              National Archives of Singapore

              As the official guardian of our nation’s heritage, the National Archives of Singapore (NAS) safeguards and preserves historical records and archival materials integral to our past. By making history more accessible and relevant to the community, we continue to encourage a deeper appreciation of our nation’s journey.

              Preserving Our Past Together

              Members of the public can pool their knowledge on Singapore through NAS’s latest initiative, the Citizen Archivist Project (www.nas.gov.sg/CitizenArchivist). The project aims to tap on the people’s knowledge to help describe and transcribe our extensive collection of records on Singapore, making them more search-friendly for everyone. These records include over 140,000 photographs and about one million pages of handwritten manuscripts from the Straits Settlement Records. This initiative also promotes a greater interest in Singapore’s history and encourages more Singaporeans to connect with our national heritage.

              The Battle for Merger Reprint

              NAS and ST Press reprinted the book, “The Battle For Merger”. The reprint was launched by Deputy Prime Minister, Coordinating Minister for National Security and Minister for Home Affairs, Mr Teo Chee Hean in October 2014. In conjunction with this, we supported an accompanying exhibition by the Ministry of Communications and Information and the Ministry of Home Affairs. Visitors were able to relive the political struggle over Singapore’s merger with Malaysia in 1961 as they listened to excerpts of 12 radio talks given by the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew. The exhibition later toured Jurong Regional Library, Ang Mo Kio Public Library, Woodlands Regional Library and Tampines Regional Library till March 2015.

                Upgrading for an Enhanced Visitor Experience

                NAS will be upgrading its facilities to offer visitors a more enriching experience of its resources.

                The Memories at Old Ford Factory (MOFF), the historic site where the British surrendered to the Japanese on 15 February 1942, has been converted into a gallery. The gallery will be revitalised with an experiential exhibition on the Japanese Occupation of Singapore, and include more interactive features. The museum will reopen in 2017 in conjunction with the 75th anniversary of the Fall of Singapore.

                Our refreshed facilities will enable Singaporeans to deepen their understanding of Singapore’s history and crucial events that shaped our nation’s path to independence.

                  Corporate Governance

                  The National Library Board (NLB) is established under the National Library Board Act (Chapter 197) and is governed by the statutory functions and constitution set out in the NLB Act. A Board comprising the Chairman and 16 non-executive members from sectors such as academia, the finance and social sectors, and public institutions guides NLB in the performance of its functions to the public. With their diverse backgrounds and experience, members of the Board are well placed to provide NLB with strategic leadership as well as to put in place effective controls to meet the highest standards of governance. There is also one observer from the Ministry of Communications and Information.

                  The Board reviews and oversees NLB’s plans, performance and policies; ensures accountability in its operations; and develops mechanisms for gathering and responding to stakeholders’ feedback. Board members helm seven committees. These are: the Audit Committee, the Establishment Committee, the Finance Committee, the National Library Advisory Committee, the Public Library Advisory Committee, the Innovation & Technology Advisory Committee and the National Archives Advisory Committee.

                  An Internal Audit Unit further strengthens NLB’s corporate governance. Reporting directly to the Chairman of the Audit Committee and administratively to the Chief Executive Officer, the Internal Audit Unit reviews the adequacy and effectiveness of NLB’s internal control system. This includes evaluating policies, procedures and systems to assess the integrity of financial and operating information, compliance with laws and regulations, and economical and efficient use of resources.

                  All NLB staff also uphold public trust by complying with a Code of Ethics and Conduct. NLB staff are empowered to report potential ethical breaches confidentially to the Board’s Establishment Committee.

                  As a charity, NLB adheres to the recommended guidelines set out in the Code of Governance for Charities and Institutions of Public Character proposed by the Charity Council (the Code). NLB openly discloses its corporate governance practices covering board governance, conflict of interest policy and other relevant governance practices and controls on an annual basis. Any deviations from the Code are also explained as part of this annual submission. NLB continually seeks to improve governance to maintain the trust and confidence of our stakeholders.

                  The members of the Board are paid allowances based on a tiered structure, which takes into consideration the different workload and responsibilities held by the various members. Fourteen of our Board members receive an annual allowance of between $10,000 to $25,000, while two members receive an annual allowance of between $5,000 to $10,000. The annual remuneration of our three highest paid executives is between $310,000 and $500,000. This comprises their salary, bonus, benefits and employers’ CPF contribution.

                  NLB proactively manages its reserves judiciously to ensure funding sustainability for operating expenditure as well as long term commitments. The quantum of minimum and maximum cash reserve, taking into account working capital needs and long-term commitments, is reviewed and approved annually by the Finance Committee of the Board. Our Board regularly reviews our financial results and position via quarterly management reports. The cash reserve as at the balance sheet date was below one year’s annual expenditure.
