Its purpose is to invite collection of books, textbooks… from the earlier courses’ students for the later ones. Thousands of textbooks, reference material, literary books, magazines… have been circulated among student generations at Van Lang University.

To welcome the new schoolyear 2018-2019, the School library has organized the program “Book donations for greetings”, expecting to collect documentary resources shared by the alumni and the current students for the freshmen K24. The library will play the role as an intermediary who will receive books from the contribution of the earlier courses’ students, then classify them by different subjects and introduce them to the freshmen during the Orientation week at the beginning of the new course (06 – 09/09/2018). Besides, for many years, the Fellows’ bookcases placed at the School library at campus 1 and campus 2 have accepted used materials from readers’ donations, being willing to offer them to those students who need.
