If there’s one place in Qatar for bookworms, it’s undoubtedly the newly opened Qatar National Library (QNL). Rows of books, plenty of reading space (with beanbags) and every imaginable genre is there. And it’s accessible free, too.
Now, you can check out QNL’s very first digital exhibition. This one-of-a-kind show will use new digital technology to showcase data in both English and Arabic on 11 interactive digital totems. There will be several unique visuals and infographics with interesting facts about reading and social media for visitors to see.
In additional to all this, the exhibition will begin after a lecture by data journalist and information designer David McCandless. The lecture will be titled “Information is Beautiful: A Data-Driven Tour of the Universe” and will take place on Wednesday April 18 at noon.
The exhibition will be held on the 11 interactive screens near the Teens Area of the library. Starting on Wednesday April 18, it will run until the end of the year.
We know you want to visit QNL and this is a great opportunity to check it out. And if you don’t want to spend time reading there (or photographing the incredible interiors and exterior), you can even take books home with you on becoming a member.
Free. Wed Apr 18, noon onwards. Teen Area, Qatar National Library, Education City (4454 6034).
