Covering four main subjects including arts and crafts, Islamic lessons, and personality and self-development, the activities will also help to strengthen Emirati national identity, while providing children with the skills that are required later on in life.

Abdulrahman Ibrahim, Head of the Dubai Public Library Department, Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, said: “In line with the UAE’s Vision to establish the country as a knowledge-based economy, the Dubai Public Library branches are committed to strengthening and nurturing the skills of our future leaders through an extensive array of theoretical and practical activities that will spark their interest and encourage them to engage in productive dialogue.”

Held across all the libraries in Dubai from Sunday to Thursday, 4am to 8pm and from 9pm to 1pm at the Hatta Public Library, the activities will include Quran recitation courses; lessons on Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), and handicrafts.

The libraries will host workshops on developing and strengthening national identity; lessons on etiquette; and a cultural tour. Children can master the basics of computers, writing in the English language, book reviews and critique, Arabic calligraphy, communication, and self-management.

For those interested in the hands-on learning, they can take up Tae Kwon Do; cooking courses; lessons on shopping wisely; painting lessons; and cultural tours and competitions.

Hatta Public Library will host Quran recitation courses, followed by a workshop on strengthening Emirati national identity. Visitors to the Hatta Public Library can sign up for computer courses; English language classes; Arabic calligraphy; self-management; communication; and etiquette workshops.
