Conducive places to study

Postby Lexi » Mon Jul 29, 2013 7:31 pm

Haha idk what topic this would be under so I just chose the most suitable one..
Anyways, does anybody know of a good public place to study? I can't seem to focus at home so I've been trying to find a good place to study (especially because my end of year exams are comic soon and right now we're having practice tests that will affect our overall score...)
I know that "libraries" or "school" are often the most common suggestions but I don't have a library within walking distance from my house (because if I feel like studying till late, I can get home quicker without having to take public transport) and my school library closes at 5 and our canteen is kind of scary when it's empty ><
Changi and places like Starbucks and McDonald or other fast food restraunts are also mentioned a lot but Changi is too far away for me (and I know that many other students go there too so it might be a little crowded adding all the other people in Changi) and I've been going to Starbucks recently, but I think it's too pricey and the blender sound is distracting sometimes...
Also, just to add on, are people allowed to study in the Singapore tourism court (orchard spring lane) or Camden medical centre? Haha these kinda give you an idea of where I live...
(I'm sorry this post is kind of fussy...)
Thanks in advance :-)

NLB building. Upper levels such 7th floor onwards are big and spacious and quiet too.

Starbucks, McDonald and fast food restaurants are anything but conducive place for study.

What about signing up for reading card membership in nearby community club?

Yeah, I guess. But, I usually study after school and its not really convenient to go from school to the NLB building and then back home :/
