The National Reading Campaign was launched in 2016 by Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) as a program that aims to create a national drive to communicate the importance of reading, and to create interest in reading amongst all residents. In 2019, the National Reading Campaign was revamped as Qatar Reads. As the NRC has evolved, so has QF’s vision of what it can be, who it must reach and how it can reach them, and what it can achieve in nurturing a culture of reading, and a nation of readers.

Family Reading Program

Family Reading Program

To feed children’s natural curiosity, and to bring books home, we select two books a month for seven age groups, KG-G8 targeting children ages 3-13. With the books come activity sheets and more. With all children reading the same theme, we create a network for children of all ages to gather and discuss, creating opportunities for the exchange of ideas and group learning. The Family Reading Program has been made possible through our collaboration with Scholastic.
Mommy to Be

Mommy to Be

Bond with your child and nurture a love of reading, from the earliest stages. Mommy to Be is a co-joined program with Qatar National Library where we provide families with educational reading materials, a curated reading program for children between the ages of 0-2, workshops on health and parenthood, and access to a local support network of mothers.


Qatar Reads aims to knit together all the different parts of Qatar’s reading community into one large tapestry of knowledge, collaborating with a variety or partners and stakeholders.
