Library Book Drive

Reading is essential in learning. Reading helps develop a creative mind, imagination, and new ideas. Throughout history, ideas have changed the destiny of nations. The reality is that not all people have access
to books in their homes, especially in their schools to help develop creative thinking. The University of Cambodia’s Toshu Fukami Library is open to the entire community, and has one of the most extensive collections of books, periodicals and reference materials, to help foster learning, in the country.

Nevertheless, the library is limited in resources. It still has a long way to evolve in order to match the resources, standards, and wealth of knowledge available at other institutional libraries around the world. As a member of the WTO and ASEAN, Cambodia grapples with modernity and struggles to catch up with the rest of the world due to a lack of resources, especially books. Building the capacity of libraries and centers for learning is crucial for developing the entire society. As the UC’s Toshu Fukami Library strives to be a center of learning and knowledge and largest depository of books, periodicals, and reference materials in Cambodia, we call upon donors, like you, to help make this vision a reality.

This library book drive is aimed not only at organizations for large donations, but at individuals who can do their part to give back to society by donating their old books. Anyone can be a donor, and every book donated is a celebrated accomplishment. The UC Toshu Fukami Library is a place where members of our community can share wisdom and knowledge; become a donor and be apart of this vital exchange of knowledge. Please contact Ms. Samantha Smith at for more information about how you can become a donor, and give back to your community.
