Hipsters, brace yourself for some serious bookgasms.

[email protected], located on the 3rd and 4th level of Orchard Gateway (that rather empty mall beside [email protected]), finally opened its doors this morning after a seven year absence in Singapore's prime shopping belt.

The two-storey library, which features stylo milo furniture, has a strong focus on design. The public can find more than 45,000 design-related books and 46 magazine titles - get this, hipsters - all new and exclusive to [email protected]

The previous [email protected] located in Ngee Ann City pulled down the shutters in 2007.

Here are 11 reasons why all self-respecting hipsters should visit the library pronto.
