Book Exchange Point
Approximately 5,000 books – such is the contribution of the Repository Exchange Fund of Riga Central Library to the “Book Exchange Point”. Visitors are invited to bring books that they have reread multiple times and do not need anymore, in order to exchange them for ones not yet read. The “Book Exchange Point” will have picture and fairy-tale books for children, reference literature, art books and other reading material for book lovers.
