La médiathèque is the only French resources centre open to the public in Singapore. It offers an extensive collection of French books for kids and adults.
From Tuesday to Saturday, our two librarians are delighted to guide you through the learning materials, onsite and online.
We have implemented a range of safety measures in line with the latest directives issued by the Singaporean government:
- Access is reserved for members of Alliance Française and is limited to 1 person per individual membership (or 1 child + 1 adult if the member is under 12 years old) and 4 people per family membership.
- Library users will be required to make an appointment ; only students who have classes on that day do not need to reserve a slot. Guests without appointments will not be allowed to enter.
- Guests will be required to sanitise their hands before entering the library.
- Capacity: 10 people max , in addition to the rules of social distancing.
- Duration: 30 minutes
- On-site reading of the library's resources (magazines, comics, etc.) is not permitted; only borrowing is possible.
