News: Sharjah's Unique Book Campaign Launched

November 26, 2008

by Suzan Abrams

The Government of Sharjah (United Arab Emirates), has launched its Knowledge without Borders book campaign from where 24,000 Emirati families stand to benefit from a project designed to last all of 2009. The project will ensure that every Emirati family is provided with a free library of 50 Arabic books each. Different genres that include religion, science, novels and stories will be distributed freely and because the Government prides itself on handing out shiny new books, no donations will be accepted from residents.

In the first phase of the drive which starts today at Shais Village along the East Coast, eight families will receive their book packages. The occasion will also be celebrated with several cultural, educational and entertainment activities.
The book project is aimed at increasing the general knowledge of Emiratis, re-inforcing culture and strengthening national identity.
