Qatar National Library will kick off the summer season with a series of events and activities aimed at providing chances for children and young adults to learn while also exploring historical and scientific topics. To serve the community, the Library will organize a number of in-person programs and workshops.

 

May 14- Young adults can attend a workshop led by volunteer Jassem Al Ashar, in which they will learn about volunteer work as well as how to discover organizations that need volunteers.

May 16- The Library will host a talk on the International Day of Light to explore publications by notable Arab scholars on Arab contributions to the development of humanity's knowledge of optics.

May 19- The Library will honor the richness of the world's cultures and the critical significance of cultural diversity in attaining peace and sustainable development on World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development.

May 21- Young adults can attend a program that will expose them to the fundamentals of data science and include live demonstrations of how these technologies are used. The workshop will be led by John Laurence Zabanal, a professional data scientist who has worked on a variety of data science initiatives.

May 22- The Library will host the first annual "Libraries Lead" conference for library professionals, with the theme "Libraries as Catalysts for Achieving UN Sustainable Development Goals." Participants will learn about community-library inter-activity (CLIA), a mindful practice that allows libraries to enable community discourse and action that leads to social transformation. This will be pre-forum. One 23 and 24 will be two-day forum of “Libraries Lead”

May 23- A presentation on "Western Travelogues to Mecca" will be held at the Library. The Heritage Library has a large collection of literature on the Middle East and North Africa written by Western tourists.

May 24- A presentation will be given on the history and method of papermaking, as well as the various variables and causes of deterioration, ranging from the environment to handling.

May 25- Participants can attend a workshop to learn about the USEK Library's daily care routine, preservation strategy, processes, and practices through a case study, followed by a final session on May 26. The Library's "Manuscript Studies Lecture Series" will continue on May 25 with a session that presents a historical overview of Turkey's library and museum holdings.

May 26- The Library will host an online book discussion for the visually impaired. The Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra will perform at the Library as part of "Unravel," a one-of-a-kind initiative that merges music and visual art. Mariya Medvedeva designed and performed the project, which depicts the influence of music on perception and the artist's inner imagination on painting.


Dr. Amra Sabic-El-Rayess, the author of "The Cat I Never Named," will also be at the Library on the same day to discuss her book, which is a riveting memoir of a Muslim youngster battling to survive among the Bosnian genocide and the stray cat who defended her family throughout.
