Are you a self-proclaimed bookworm🐛? Do you need more books to read while being at home these days? Do you want to learn a new skill🔨? We have resources for you! Come and browse through tables of treasures!

📚All the books will be sold in the Intergenerational room only and there will be free books outside of the room.

📅The Book Sale will run from Wednesday to Saturday all June.

🌳Various indoor/outdoor plants including Myoga, Yomogi, Shiso and succulent plants and flowers are also available!  A special thank-you to our auxiliary to make this happen!

We are taking the actions below to help ensure the health and well-being of visitors:

The Book Sale hours are Wednesday to Saturday 11 am – 4 pm to allow for additional time to thoroughly clean and stock more books for the next day. Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre opens from Tuesday to Saturday from 9:30 am - 5 pm.
We are creating lineup lanes to go into the saleroom to further support physical distancing. We will also limit the number of visitors inside the Intergenerational room where the books will be sold - Intergenerational room will have up to 7 people at any given time.
All the book titles will be visible. Please help us by minimizing the touching of books as much as possible.
Payment by credit card or debit card is encouraged. However, we also accept payment by cash.
We are enhancing daily cleaning procedures before/after and during our operation hours. We will increase the frequency of cleaning commonly touched surfaces. In addition, sanitizer stations will be added for your comfort and convenience. Please notify us if you have any questions or concerns.
If you aren't feeling well, we kindly ask that you stay home and take care of yourself.
