In the Book Bugs program by National Library Board (NLB), when you borrow books or eBooks, you get awarded points, which can then be used to redeem Book Bugs cards. Given the current Safe Management Measure, the launch of the latest series of collectable cards has been pushed back.
While you may not be able to collect cards from the new land yet, the third edition of this popular game, Book Bugs: Explorers of Stories Past, offers a series of curated printable activities, story comics, WhatsApp and Telegram sticker packs, wallpapers and other bonus items that enable children to fully experience the Book Bugs programme! These are uploaded every second Monday of the month.
