FairPrice Share-A-Textbook (formerly known as FairPrice Used Textbooks Project) is NTUC FairPrice’s signature community project that is conducted annually.

NTUC FairPrice first started the Used Textbooks Project in 1983. Pre-loved textbooks were collected and distributed for free to needy students. The project was rebranded as FairPrice Share-A-Textbook in 2010.

The objectives of the project are to

  1. Promote a greener Singapore through recycling of pre-loved textbooks;
  2. Encourage the value of thrift; and
  3. Relieve the financial burden of families by providing free pre-loved textbooks.

Over the past 33 years, more than 3.9 million text books had been collected to help over 220,000 students save on textbooks expenses.

This year, members of the public are welcome to pick up pre-loved textbooks on 11 December 2016 at any of the five distribution centers. Students under the Priority Collection Scheme will pick up their textbooks on 10 December 2016.

If you wish to donate your pre-loved textbooks, the collection period is from 9 Nov – 4 Dec 2016 at any Fairprice store. More info here
