The Library has approximately 600 members of all ages and many nationalities. All applications are warmly welcomed.
We are the oldest "not-for-profit" organisation in Thailand and depend for our survival on membership subcriptions, fund-raising events and sponsorship.
Individuals interested in sponsoring our activities, donating books or those who would like to get more involved with the running of the Library, please visit our Support page, above. Actively supporting the NHL can be very enjoyable and rewarding.
AMCHAM members: please check out our 2011 AMCHAM - NHL Promotion
Membership categories and fees vary to suit different needs, see below. Please note that the "new" category refers to books that are less than 1 year old and are therefore likely to be in high demand.
You may submit the form electronically or if you are coming to the Library in person, you may prefer to print it out and bring it with you.
You may pay by cash in person but please do not mail cash. Instead use a cheque or bank transfer - kindly contact us for Library bank transfer details.
Books may be borrowed following confirmation of new membership - normally straightaway.
