“Great way to give”

Luang Prabang Library
Attraction details
Reviewed June 18, 2014

We were walking past the library when we saw a sign outside the front saying you could buy books for children/villages. So we went inside and did exactly that. You pick the books you want, and can make other donations. The staff inside were lovely to talk to as well.

There is no limit to using the computer. There are excellent books in the library, taking into consideration that Laos is a poor country and there is a high illiteracy rate.

Visiting this place will help earn you brownie points for good deeds. You can purchase books for donation and place them in the book bags. Literacy rate in Laos is low. For 20,000 kip which is about $3.00, you can donate a book. There was a Monk chat ongoing in the room beside it and i was told that one can volunteer to help them practice their english. Just in case you miss it, its in an old colonial building, walk further up from Mount Phousi towards the roundabout.

Loved coming here and hearing about the book boat that goes to schools along the Mekong. Be sure to chip in for a book or two to go in the book bags on the wall to do your bit.
