Luang Prabang Library, Luang Prabang

4.0
Luang Prabang Library helps children in rural villages receive education through donated books. The library staff places books in quilted bags and then hangs them on trees near remote settlements lacking schools and other cultural institutions. If you donate to this unconventional library, you will get the chance to visit one of the villages and see excitement of children as they receive the books. Put Luang Prabang Library into our Luang Prabang visit planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • If you want to go in and volunteer some time, there is usually a mixture of novice monks and lay people of all ages willing to learn as much of anything as possible!
