Time Out Says

4 out of 5 stars

Jim Thompson is Thailand’s—or perhaps Southeast Asia’s—largest silk company, so it makes sense that it subsidizes a library that’s dedicated to tomes and literature on Oriental textiles. Discreetly tucked in a modern building next to the famous Jim Thompson House, the William Warren Library was named after the first author and biographer who dedicated most of his work and efforts to educating people on the life and accomplishments of Jim Thompson himself. Opened in 2007, this compact reading room features more than 3,000 books on textiles, and the different weaving cultures in Southeast Asia and elsewhere. Members can borrow up to three books a time for up to ten days.
