WATCH: Welcome to Qatar - Qatar National Library

By QL Videos

As the first National Library built in this millennium, Qatar National Library (QNA) gives meaning to the definition of a contemporary library. It provides equal access for all of Qatar's residents, in an environment that supports creativity, independent decision-making, and cultural development.

 

The beautifully designed building contains over a million books on its shelves. And, in addition to its full-text online resources, the Library currently has more than 500,000 eBooks, periodicals, newspapers, and special collections.

Qatar National Library also acts as a steward of Qatar’s national heritage by collecting, preserving and creating easy access to the country’s recorded history. The Library’s multiple sections include study rooms, a section for creativity, a section for kids, its own theatre, and a lot more.

QNL is located in Qatar Foundation and is open from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM from Saturday to Thursday. And on Fridays, it's open from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM. All you need, to become a member, is to have a valid Qatari ID.
