Qatar National Library (QNL) is all set to host a variety of educational and entertainment activities this August to cater to children, young adults, and music enthusiasts.

The library will be hosting a Palestine Culture Week to raise awareness around the country’s traditions, culture, art, and food.

In collaboration with Little Thinking Minds, the Children’s Library will host the Summer Reading Challenge from 1 August to encourage reading in children ages 9 to 11 years.

Winners will be rewarded with books, coupons, certificates and more in September. The complete brochure and application steps can be found here.

On 2 August, the library, in collaboration with the State Audit Bureau, will host a session on the bureau’s role in safeguarding public funds, state funds and the funds of all entities subject to its control to combat corruption.

On 5 August, the much-awaited musical evening will be taking place on Instagram Live featuring the United States Air Forces Central Band, who will perform popular music, from chart-topping tunes to golden rock-and-roll classics.

A fixture of the United States Air Force’s partnership missions in Southwest Asia, the band regularly performs for ambassadors, embassy functions, local communities, school assemblies and military ceremonies, and works to create forums for cultural exchange and conversation.

The band promises audiences a unique and engaging experience aimed at exploring the cultures and traditions that define Qatar as part of the Qatar-USA Year of Culture 2021.

On 7 August, the library will kick off the second season of the Young Adults’ Virtual Summer Camp, a series of seven fun and engaging activities.

The events will include the Young Adults’ Film Club, Basic Web Development for Young Adults, Young Adults’ Coding Club, Python Mathematics and Define Your Life Compass to help young adults plan their future and career goals. The camp is held in collaboration with the Qatar Career Development Center.

The library will also be hosting “Palestine Culture Week: A Land Worthy of Life” between 8 and 12 August to explore the nation’s art, literature, food and more.

The week will be filled with educational and engaging activities such as book readings, a video on Al Aqsa Mosque, and informational sessions on the history of the Palestinian keffiyeh, Palestinian archives and traditional embroidery.

On 10 August, Eman Darwish, Speech and Language Pathologist from Kuwait will deliver a lecture for parents and educators on “Stutters in Children.” The presentation will address ways to help children who have recently developed speech difficulties understand and overcome challenges. The lecture will also discuss stuttering conditions caused by fear.

On 19 August, the Library will host the program “Assistive Technologies for Reading” to help parents and educators select the appropriate assistive technology tools for their children.

On 22 August, the United States Air Forces Central Band and the Music Affairs Center of the Ministry of Culture and Sports will celebrate the Qatar-USA Year of Culture 2021. The band will perform a collection of musical pieces from several decades in an event called “Melodies From Past and Present.”

The library will continue to offer educational and engaging events throughout August 2021.
