The much-loved Neilson Hays Library book sale will be back on May 26 and 27 from 9.30 to 4pm offering thousands of fiction, non-fiction, and large-format books in English, plus a selection of other languages, donated by Neilson Hays Library supporters.

The popular fundraiser has books in all genres, with prices starting at Bt20.

Since the library’s restoration is still taking place, the book sale will be held in the grounds of its neighbour, the British Club, with the latter providing food and drinks. 

As usual, parking is only available in the Voravit Building on Surawong Road, near Naret Road, some 20 metres before the library entrance for Bt30 an hour. 

Visitors are reminded not to park on the street in front of the library or risk getting their wheels locked.

And please bring your own bags as no plastic bags will be available. Paper bags will be on sale at Bt10 each. .

If you have any unwanted books to contribute to the sale, please drop them off at the library between 9.30am to 5pm any day except Mondays and national holidays, before the sale. Proceeds go towards the extensive restoration of the landmark building.

For more information, call (02) 233 1731.
