The Book Stop Intramuros is a pop-up library located in Plaza Roma, Intramuros, Manila. The unit was designed and conceptualized by William Ti and commissioned in 2016 by the WTA Architecture + Design Studio (WTA). In June 2017, the management and ownership of the Book Stop Intramuros was transferred to the Intramuros Administration.[1][2]

The Book Stop Intramuros is a component of WTA's The Book Stop Project Network which explores how libraries need to evolve, attract and engage contemporary users, and promote reading for the younger generations.[3]
