The National Library operates a small book shop to generate funds for supporting new publications and is located on the ground floor on the left side of the Administration Building. The money generated from the sales is deposited to a revolving fund to be used for future publications and purchasing books.The bookstall sells a selection of books written in Choekey, Dzongkha, and also a range of English language publications on Bhutanese culture and religion. Many of the works on sale are the National Library’s own publications.
While the sale of publications provides operating funds for the NLAB in general, their wider distribution serves to raise awareness of Bhutanese culture and religion.
