Qatar launches mobile library to promote reading among children

I thought this article about the introduction of a children’s mobile library service in Qatar was interesting, especially the emphasis that Qatar’s Culture, Arts & Heritage Minister puts on the value of reading.

“… the ministry was keen on supporting projects that would develop abilities and talents, but singled out reading as a development of great value that the community must instill in children at an early age to help build a generation of enlightened intellectuals.”

“… the significance of the project will be obvious when children grow up and see that their creative work had reached the community.”

“… such projects will allow Qatar to have thousands of writers whose innovations were started when they were young.”
