Book Swap 2023

Swap books and Share your Kindness

World Book Day was first held on April 23rd, 1995, and organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) to honour books and authors globally and promote access to books.

To celebrate this day, RMIT Vietnam Library has organised 'BOOK SWAP' as an annual event to spread the love of reading to everyone. All members of RMIT University Vietnam are invited to be a part of this special activity, including alumni. 

Games and activities are included. Join board games and online games to get little gifts from us.

Thank you to our partner RMIT Japanese Culture Club for making this event a success.

So now, it's time to check your bookshelves again and...

SWAP old books for new adventures!
