Bsides browsing titles from some 150 publishers across Asia, bookworms who visit the 29th Singapore Book Fair will also get the chance to learn more about going green.

The longest-running book fair here, which starts today, will feature for the first time a "green library" to spread the message of environmental conservation.

Called My Tree House, the pavilion will allow visitors to take part in story-telling sessions or make handicrafts from recycled material.

It is based on a similar library which was opened atthe Central Public Library in Victoria Street in May last year.
