How to Borrow Books from ANDI Initiative

Choose one of two books that you want to borrow.

Email or SMS me the titles, I will let you know if they are immediately available or if they are loaned out.

If available, contact me directly to arrange day and time to borrow. More than likely, I will leave the books with a neighbour for you to pick up from, at Section 17, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Address will only be given out once date and time is confirmed. Alternatively, you and I may decide to meet somewhere as time permits.

There is a fully-refundable deposit of RM30-50 per book. You can bank in ahead of time, or bring with you when you pick up the book(s). This will be refunded when you return the book in good condition.

Books can be borrowed for two weeks. That deadline can be extended if no one else is waiting for the books.

Currently there is no browsing allowed, you will have to decide ahead of time which book(s) you want. For a somewhat complete list of books, click HERE, or check out our photos on the ANDI Initiative Facebook page.

A gentle reminder: This book loan service is for PARENTS of children with special needs, as it is meant to reduce slightly the financial burden in raising a children with special needs. Other parties (therapists, teachers, my past and present grown-up students, etc) may borrow on a case-by-case basis.

Please be patient with this less-than-ideal arrangement. Having NO paid staff helps keep this a free service.


With warm wishes and kind regards,
