BOOKS

Listings (4):

There are three international bookstores which can be found in Tripoli.  While stores in the past have stocked mostly educational reading pertaining to learning English or books on Libya, a new book store has opened which stocks a greater variety of books and will order specific books in store.  While this is a huge step forward for Libya, it is still the only store in Tripoli of its kind.




Before you go:

It is wise to bring an extensive selection of your own books, as choice of new reading material will be limited once in Libya.  Expats usually lend and borrow books from each other, and magazines or newspapers find their way around town going from family to family.


Religious reading material (other than on Islam) cannot be found in Tripoli, however there are no laws against you bringing in religious literature for your own personal study.
