Would you like to Volunteer?

Donate Books?

Sponsor The Neilson Hays Library?

As Thailand's oldest non-profit making institution, the Library relies on your support and generosity for its survival.


We are always delighted to receive offers to help, whether in a small or significant way. For example, would you be able to help at our twice-yearly book sales? Would you like to read to children on a Saturday morning or assist with the crafts? Could you help us perform book inventories?

Maybe you have skills that could improve aspects of library-management such as automating the stock and checking-out processes?

Would you like to assist the gallery curators?

Do you have fresh ideas for fundraising?

Simply call into the Library and make yourself known as a prospective volunteer or contact us and let us know how you would like to help.

Donation of Books?

We are grateful for book donations. Members of the Board will decide whether they are suited to the Library shelves or for our twice-yearly book sales. Book sales raise vital funds for new purchases. Please keep an eye on the Facebook page to see when the next book sale is approaching.


It was only through Dr Heyward Hays' generous endowment that the library survived in the past. Currently we have no endowment remaining; so each passing year brings fresh financial challenges for this beautiful but ageing building. Sponsorship is vital for our future. Generous individuals and/or businesses may wish to become sponsors. We are pleased to thank significant donors (should they wish) with plaques and other gestures of recognition. Please contact us if you would like to be a sponsor, or if you have fundraising ideas for us.
