about us

Qatar Reads, an initiative under Qatar National Library, is dedicated to promoting a culture of reading within Qatar. Our focus is to use the power of reading as a tool for knowledge-sharing, instilling values, fostering analytical thinking, and driving social progress through our various programs and reading campaigns.

Our goal is to ignite a nationwide movement that inspires people to read more and share their love and knowledge of books with others. To achieve this, we design programs and events that cater to a wide range of age groups and that meet the needs of all citizens living in Qatar.

Our programs focus on various sections of the community, such as schools, workplaces, and homes, as they all play a role in community development. At Qatar Reads, we hold the belief that reading is a powerful tool for personal growth and development. Through reading, we can discover new ideas, exchange diverse perspectives, explore different realms of knowledge, and transform our ourselves and the world around us.

Our values at Qatar Reads revolve around the power of reading:
