Staff are currently planning services for our opening in a spectacular library building designed by renowned architect Rem Koolhaas.
The library will be offering state of the art facilities, technologies and services that any Qatar resident may use. Included in our facilities will be public computer workstations, digital media production facilities, a variety of collaborative and individual learning spaces, a Children's Library, performance spaces, a café and more.
Through this participation QNL will present a wide range of activities, aiming to familiarize visitors with the library and its services. The library activities will include book discussion on “The Corsair”, meet the author event, and live demonstration about preservation and conservation and public lectures.
Qatar National Library (QNL) is taking part in the 27th Doha International Book Fair, from 30 November to 10 December, at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center (DECC). QNL will feature daily live demonstrations on the digitisation and the preservation and conversation of heritage materials at its booth, designed to showcase its efforts in preserving the nation’s heritage.
