Book Swap 2024

Book Swap 2024: Give and spread our love

BOOK SWAP - RMIT Vietnam Library's most anticipated event is back!

  • Bring the books you wish to swap to your campus library. We will start receiving books from 18 March to 22 April at booths located at RMIT Vietnam Library (both SGS and HN) and RMIT Canteen (SGS)
  • The more books you bring, the more books you can exchange. With 15 books exchanged, you can receive a brand new book from the library
  • On World Book Day, 23 April, the main event will happen. You can check in with your e-Ticket to start swapping books with other participants!

Calling for donation: Nurture the little warrior's passion for reading with Vina Capital Foundation (VCF)

To nurture young patients' passion for reading and accompany them in their journey to recovery, RMIT University has coordinated with Vina Capital Foundation (VCF) to donate books to hospitals in Hanoi and HCMC.

Book swap 2023 donation

Last year, nearly 300 children's books and 1,900 stationary items including notebooks, art supplies, and pens were donated to Cardiovascular Center - E Hospital Hanoi, Children's Hospital 2, and Ho Chi Minh City Heart Institute. 


Thank you so much for accompanying RMIT Vietnam’s Library and VCF to care for the mental and physical health of the little patients.

This year, we're collecting donations at the Book Swap event to continue our story. We hope for more support from all of you. Your contributions make a big difference and we truly appreciate them 🥰
