The information I am sharing here is culled from NLB’s Official Website.

Time: 8.30am – 6pm
Venue: The Plaza, National Library Building

3 easy steps to exchange your books for new reads:

  1. Bring your used books* to any NLB Public Library (except library@chinatown) from 27 April to 12 May, 11.00am to 8.00pm. From 12 May to 18 May, used books will be accepted at the Central Public Library only.
  2. Drop off your used books* and get a book exchange coupon indicating a one-for-one exchange for each of the books accepted. In the meantime, you can share your stories about books & reading at the NLB’s facebook page
  3. Bring your coupons to The Plaza, National Library Building, on 18 May to redeem other books.

Terms and Conditions
* Used books for exchange should be in good condition. Adult and children’s fiction and non-fiction books (e.g. cookbooks, travel guides and romance novels) in the four official languages are eligible for exchange. Used library books bought from NLB Library Book Sales are also eligible for exchange. Textbooks, magazines and audio-visual materials will not be eligible for exchange. Each person can exchange up to 50 books. For enquiries, please call NLB Helpdesk at 6332 3255 or email: helpdesk (at) library (dot) nlb (dot) gov (dot) sg.

So, will I see you there?

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
