Under the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, 65,000 books from the 33rd Abu Dhabi International Book Fair were distributed to libraries of 220 schools across the UAE.

Made possible thanks to a financial grant, the initiative aims to support school libraries in promoting a culture of reading among students.

The titles and publications were purchased from 77 publishing houses that participated in the book fair, with the aim of enriching students’ knowledge and expanding schools’ educational resources.

Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Chairman of DCT Abu Dhabi, said: “The Arabic language, with its diverse and rich literary heritage, is more than just a means of communication. Our language is a powerful and inclusive tool for innovative and critical thinking, allowing us to unite in our thoughts and words.

“This vital and generous grant from President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan will encourage the reading and protection of our language, help us foster deeper understanding and bring together the many cultures and people who speak it, ensuring its continued existence of our collective wisdom to guide future generations.
