Our library is growing!

I’m proud to announce that our library has now grown to a selection of more than 400 books!

Some of our books were sourced from secondhand shops from UK and USA, and are out of print editions. So when you read them, do stop a moment to think how much history these books have experienced and appreciate the good condition they are still in for you to be able to hold them in your hands today!

[Important Notice] Changes to Membership Fees

Thank you for your loyal patronage of the Tiny Books library.

Due to postage price increase from 2017-06-01 onwards, we have to raise our membership fees as well, and we seek your understanding for this.

Members who have already renewed their membership for 2017 will only be billed for any additional postages incurred from June-2017 onwards in a single invoice in December 2017. New membership fees will only be effective for these members upon renewal for the 2018 membership.

The new membership fees will be effective for new members and renewals in 2017. As an appreciation, Members paying the new fees will be able to loan one additional book/month for the months up to July. (Happy Member: 6 books/month, Bookworm Member: 11 books/month)

平素よりTiny Booksをご利用いただき、誠にありがとうございます。



(ハッピープラン : 6冊の本貸出, 愛読家プラン: 11冊の本貸出)

Online Readings Update

Hello everyone!
We have added 19 books to the readings page –

Due to copyright issues, we try not to show too much of the book during the readings except the words so that you can follow along and learn to read to your child. Do let me know if you have any feedback!

Stay warm and enjoy your books!
