BOOK EXCHANGE | Thursday, Mar. 23

We're switching things up. Next event, instead of our usual weekend get together, we'll be open from 7-9pm on a Thursday evening (Mar. 23).

Although the timeframe is a little shorter, attendees can still browse books, meet people, and exchange ideas at our meetup.

About the Book Exchange

• We are Shenzhen's biggest expat library, with around 700 English books and 200 Chinese/foreign language ones.

• During events we open up our collection for checkouts, returns, discussions, and the occasional special event. 

• Run on volunteer power and hosted at a community center, we are always free and open to the public. No cover charge, no registration, no need to bring a book (although donations are always welcome).

• Drop by anytime during our events. You can make a quick book run or hang out for hours, it's entirely up to you.

• We meet twice a month, on Sunday afternoons or weekday evenings. We post about our events about a week in advance on Meetup,,, and WeChat (ID: BookExchange).


We’re inside an apartment complex called Shuiwei Xin Jiayuan (水围新家园). Once inside, walk all the way to the back and we’ll be on the right.
