Book Bank at Botanic Gardens

Do you do your outdoor frequent at Botanic Gardens?

We found a new addition next to the Gardens Shop @ Tanglin Gate! While we were invited to a paper quilling session among the lush greenery, it was nice to be introduced to a Book Bank just next to the shop.

First hands on paper quilling

The campaign was started by Gardens shop to cultivate a love for reading, especially among little ones who visit the gardens, as well as to make bonding time with the family more fun and rewarding.

Bookshelves are stocked with books and visitors are encouraged to pick up a book or drop a book in exchange for a title that interests them.

The Book Bank

So if you've got a pre-loved book to bless another avid reader, bring it down the gardens for bless or exchange. Readers may take a book or 2 to a quiet corner or to their picnic by the gardens.

It's a wonderful combination like a Roman philosopher Marcus Tullius Cicero once said, "If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need." Just how tranquil that sounds.

And of course, don't forget to explore the park with much fun and reading! The greens will do much good to your eyes after some fixation on the pages.

Great fun in the gardens!

Do remember now to bring a book down for exchange or drop off the next time you visit our UNESCO World Heritage site, Singapore Botanic Gardens. It just got more exciting!

Have a great time reading outdoor! And if it gets to warm, get cooled in the gardens shop for some shopping time.
