History of Hon Sui Sen Memorial Library
The Havelock Community Centre leaders and senior civil servants mooted the idea to start a fund to build a library as a fitting memorial to the late Mr Hon's selfless dedication to society and the country. Following the Government's approval in 1984 to set up the library at NUS, the Hon Sui Sen Memorial Library Fund Raising Committee was formed. In December the same year, the Planning Committee for the Library was set up and Mrs Lee-Wang Cheng Yeng was appointed Head-Designate of the Library and Chairperson of the Committee.
On 5 Oct 1984, the foundation stone for the building was laid by Mrs Annie Hon, wife of the late Mr Hon Sui Sen. Construction work on the building started in November 1984 and was completed 25 months later.
The Library started operations on 15 June 1987 and was declared officially opened by Mr Goh Chok Tong, the then First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence on 15 January 1988.
