Project Idea

The launch of the “Book Bank” project is based on the announcement of His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, The President – May Allah save and bless him – that the year 2017 is “UAE’s Year of Giving”. It also comes in line with the responsibilities of the Ministry of Culture & Knowledge Development, within the National Reading Strategy (2016 – 2026). Book Bank is a cultural knowledge project; which lasts all year long, to reflect the social partnership and responsibility of all individuals and organizations in society, and to encourage and support reading. The concept of the project is that the Ministry will make channels available, to receive all kinds of books (used or new) from different individuals, entities and bookstores, in an attempt to give them the opportunity to donate their books for those who are interested in reading, in addition to the knowledge projects launched by the Ministry.
