    What is Mohammed Bin Rashid Library?

    Located in Al Jaddaf overlooking the Dubai Creek, Mohammed Bin Rashid Library is far more than the average knowledge hub. Its highly anticipated launch will place it alongside the largest, most famous libraries in the world! In addition to being a state-of-the-art library containing numerous collections, the 66,000 square meter development will also be a cultural space for events, exhibitions, activities, education, and festivals.

    Mohammed Bin Rashid Library Book Collection

    The Mohammed Bin Rashid Library is set to house more than 4.5 million books, 1 million audiobooks, and 2 million eBooks. The diverse collections offered within its walls will work to bring together intellectuals and thinkers alike, while also encouraging the habit of reading in children. The project also aims to aid professionals engaged in research and education.

    Mohammed Bin Rashid Library Construction & Design: It’s 6 Pillars

    The structure of this prestigious establishment resembles a ‘Rhel’ which is a Turkish lectern upon which the Quran is traditionally placed. It is built on six pillars, each of which promotes the project’s unique goals:

    • The first pillar features eight specialized libraries: Business, Children, Multimedia, Youth, Arabic, Family, Popular, and International genres.
    • The second pillar focuses on encouraging the habit of reading.
    • The third pillar consists of a vast variety of eBooks.
    • The fourth pillar authorizes new books and translates popular titles from around the world to Arabic.
    • The fifth pillar will be dedicated to the preservation of the Arabic language.
    • The sixth and final pillar will serve to uphold and display cultural heritage while also exhibiting Arabic art.
