Book Exchange

Book Exchange

Tamnak Lao Restaurant, through its association with the Lao Kids Project, supports the Luang Prabang Library by helping with its Book Exchange programme. We have donated hundreds of books to the Book Exchange to ensure its success. 

The main purpose of the Book Exchange is to raise funds to purchase Book Bags for the Luang Prabang  Library to take to rural schools in their Tuk-Tuk LibraryThese Book Bags then become the basis of a school library for the children.

There are over 1000 books for exchange or purchase at the Book Exchange - for all ages and reading styles. These include a wide selection of English and non-English language books.

Exchange your own books "One for One" plus pay 20,000 kip per book taken. Or purchase any book at excellent prices.

All money collected at the Book Exchange goes to the children. There are no administrative costs! 

Where:  The Book Exchange is based at the Luang Prabang Library. It is open whenever the library is open. If you are planning on visiting Luang Prabang, please come and visit the Book Exchange and exchange/buy a book, or just leave a donation. Just ask the staff at the front desk to help you.

Visit for more details of how your donations are spent.  Through the website, donations can be made online via Paypal. Donors contributing USD$20 or more receive an official Thank You Certificate from the library.

Take pleasure in giving something back to the country you are visiting, knowing that 100% of your contribution goes towards helping children with improved health and a good education. Through our combined efforts we can enable these children to achieve higher education levels and obtain jobs and by doing this, help bring themselves, their families and Laos out of poverty.

Every little bit helps a child improve his or her life!
