Tomes find a home

The massive new Qatar National Library (QNL) building in Education City just opened its doors to the public, giving residents access to more than one million books, periodicals and special collections, as well as the QNL Heritage Library. Members can check out books and other media from the main collection, access the Children’s and Teen’s Library, and begin using QNL’s creative and collaborative facilities, such as the Writing Center, Innovation Stations, and study rooms. The Heritage Library might be our favourite part with rare and valuable texts and manuscripts, historical maps, scientific instruments and early photography. So next weekend, don’t be surprised if you find us on a bean bag, cosying up with a good book.
Membership free for QID holders. Qatar Foundation, Education City, www.qnl.qa.
