Children’s Library

The Children’s Library has a variety of fiction and non-fiction books. All books are for in-house reading only. Apart from books on Islam and Islamic arts, other subjects are also in the collection such as science, art, architecture, history and many more interesting subjects for the curious minds. The Children’s Library also has a wide book collection from authors like Eric Carle and Dr Seuss, as they are famous for stirring the imagination of young readers through their delightful presentation.

The library is open daily from 10am to 5.30pm.

Daily craft

This new activity is dedicated for walk-in visitors to the Children’s Library where we offer an easy and simple craft for grown-ups and children to do together. We believe that we can nurture the children’s imagination with these fun ideas and creative play. Come and join us in this fun and free art session!

Weekend Activities

Our Children’s Library hosts a Storytelling Session followed by an Art & Craft Workshop every Saturday at 3.00pm.* Targeted for children between 4 to 12 years-old, a specific theme is chosen every week and the workshop begins with a storytelling session led by Education staff or volunteers, followed by an art and craft session. Children below 6 years-old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Our Sunday Screening also takes place in our Children’s Library every Sunday. Come at 3.00pm and watch a 15-minute screening of a recorded wayang kulit (shadow puppet) performance! The stories presented are taken from fables, folktales, legends, and influential literature, and adapted suitably for young audiences, Each week we will be showing one video in English and one video in Malay according to the theme chosen for each month.

Check-out our Instagram regarding the themes for the Weekend Activities each month and come and join the fun!

*Please note that limited seats are available each Saturday for the Art & Craft Session.
