Book Donations

Do you have picture books you no longer want? We are always looking for books, for all ages, that are in good condition for our libraries in Phrao. Here are types of books we are looking for:

If you have books in Thai language: We happily accept all genre of books except for school textbooks and magazine back numbers. If you live in Thailand, and have books in English language: To make the books fully accessible to our Thai speaking readers, we send the English books to our translation volunteers around Thailand, who manually put the Thai text into the books. This takes a lot of time and effort. Therefore, we no longer accept books in English. But there are exceptions.

We would love to have books in any language if they have special effects, such as popup books, touch-and-feel books, and books with sounds or music built in. Those are very hard to be found in Thailand, yet very effective for children who are new to the world of pleasure reading as well as for those children with special needs.

It can be hard for families to afford the luxury of buying books, Bookworm overcomes this barrier by offering a membership to an unlimited amount of books at any time with lifelong subscription fee of 10 baht (around 25 Euro cents). We have hundreds of library members who love to see new book titles published on our Facebook News feed.
