Dubai Public Library

Published January 9th, 2011 - 13:26 GMT

 The first edition of Dubai Public Library saw the light of day in 1963. Located in Al Ras overlooking the banks of Khor Dubai, it ushered in a fresh wave of culture and knowledge in the city.

Each Dubai Public Library branch has been developed to meet the needs and expectations of the community it is located in. Their demographics determined the content of the inventory as well as the infrastructure. Yet, a common thread that binds the eight branches is the emphasis on 'sharing'. The sharing of knowledge, culture, art, entertainment and the desire to know more that draws a reader to a library. The Dubai Public Library is that beacon of light in your community. Find one closest to where you live and discover a host of services and facilities designed to connect you with a universe of recorded imagination and thought.
