NLB discontinued it many years ago. Now some selected libraries have a book exchange corner where you can leave your books for others to pick up or you pick up other books.

Typically, the books there are super old.

thanks. Actually come to think of it, I remember somehow hearing about it somewhere.. but also can't remember where and how now. Tried searching, but all I find is http://eresources.nlb.gov.sg/infoped...005-01-20.html, which does not mention discontinuing.. but is also only as up-to-date as 2016 ('The information in this article is valid as at 2016')

Quite often when going to the library, will see some ah peks taking a lot of the books away without leaving any in exchange. :(

I usually leave my books at exchange corner after I finished reading. Better to give them away while they still look new and before the pages turn yellowish.

Almost all have exchange corner except those in shopping ctr because maybe space expensive or short (no place to hide the big shelf etc).

As for book sale, nowadays is give away. Think it is in July annually, so be in lookout or ask librarian around the time about the event/ location:
