Mrs Elaine Ng

Honorary Fellow


Elaine Poh Choo Neo (Elaine Ng) matriculated in 1984 and spent three memorable years at St Catharine’s reading English. Today, Elaine is Chief Executive Officer of the National Library Board (NLB) of Singapore which oversees the country’s network of 26 public libraries, the National Library, the National Archives, and the Film Archive. Elaine believes that books are doors to new experiences and reading holds the keys. She hopes that through her work, reading resources are accessible to more and more people in Singapore. Before joining NLB in April 2011, Elaine was the Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the National Heritage Board (NHB) which oversees the museum and heritage sector in Singapore.
