Bukit Batok Community Library (Simplified Chinese: 武吉巴督社区图书馆) is located at Bukit Batok on the third floor of West Mall in Singapore. This is fifth library of the National Library Board that is located inside a shopping mall. The library was officially opened on 21 November 1998 by Deputy Prime Minister, BG (NS) Lee Hsien Loong.
It was the first library in which the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Electronic Library Management System (ELiMS) was implemented. The Electronic Library Management System was developed together by Singapore Technologies LogiTrack and the National Library Board. The ELiMS system manages the tracking, distribution, circulation and flow of books in the library. The advantages of this technology is that it allows books to be cancelled immediately as they are returned through automated book-drops and the loan records of the borrowers are updated instantly.
