About Maktaba Books

We are Maktaba Books and we are a peer-to-peer community library. Books that have been collecting dust on your shelves are given life again when they are borrowed by one of our readers for free.

Our mission is to increase access to knowledge, especially for books on Islam and Malay Studies, and to further build up the Malay-Muslim community in Singapore.
