Under the guidance of Sheikha Bodour bint Sultan Al Qasimi, Chairperson of the Sharjah Book Authority (SBA), a thoughtful initiative has been launched during the 42nd Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF).
School students attending the fair are set to receive vouchers generously provided by the authority, allowing them to enrich their libraries with the latest releases from participating publishers.
A Literary Wonderland for Students:
With the fair continuing until November 12th, students can explore a vast selection of over 1.5 million titles presented by 2,033 Arab and foreign publishers.
This initiative encourages a love for reading and supports the SBA’s mission to provide easy access to knowledge and learning resources for younger generations.
Nurturing a Knowledge-Based Society:
Aligned with the emirate’s vision of establishing a knowledge-based society, the voucher distribution exemplifies the SBA’s commitment to fostering a culture of reading and learning.
By empowering students to choose their favorite titles, the authority seeks to make a lasting impact on their educational journey.
Promoting Reading Awareness and Future Aspirations:
Through continuous initiatives and events, the SBA aims to raise awareness among children about the significance of reading.
The focus extends beyond the immediate benefits to instill an understanding of the profound impact reading has on shaping their future and contributing to the broader goals of the UAE.
Diverse Offerings at the 42nd Edition:
The 42nd Edition of the Sharjah International Book Fair is not just a book exhibition but a cultural extravaganza.
