NLB’s Suggested Reads for the 2013 School Holidays (Primary 2)

Books

Planning a visit the library during the 2013 December School Holidays? If you are wondering what books to borrow at the public libraries, we have asked the folks at the National Library Board to share with us some suggested titles that children can borrow and read.

These 17 titles have been selected for the Primary Two level.

You can click on the titles to check if the books are available at your preferred library. The authors and call numbers have also provided to make it easier to track them down at the library.

For the period from 16 Nov 2013 to 31 January 2014, you can borrow twice the number of books as usual at the public libraries in Singapore.
