Our History

When we opened our doors we made a commitment to Qatar’s 300,000+ school age children. We committed to providing open access to high quality age appropriate reading materials in Arabic and English, to inspiring children to fall in love with reading through immersive, fun and engaging programming, to creating a space that reflects our community and inspires all of us to make reading a priority. We extend our programming to schools and nurseries both on site and in schools. Each program is thoughtfully designed to reinforce key themes related to their class work.

Benefits of Sponsorship

By sponsoring Maktaba, your organization can positively impact every home in Qatar. Our programs are accessible to all and encourage positive proactive fun and learning. As the first local project of its kind, you will be a pioneer in reshaping the reading culture in Qatar by raising awareness about the importance of reading and providing access to high quality multi-lingual books and resources.

To continue to expand our collection of books and enhance our activity programmes Maktaba Children’s Library is launching its 10 for 10 campaign partnering with corporate organizations who have a special commitment to fostering a love of reading and hands-on learning in Qatar. For the cost of $10,000 per year you will become a branch on our learning tree. In return we will offer your organization 10 family memberships for the library, a 10% discount on membership for your staff and opportunities to promote your organization’s CSR commitment to Maktaba.
