During the SHCT library reading week, the Knowledge Without Borders project, an initiative by H.H Dr. Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, promoted Arabic reading on the two campuses.
The initiative hopes to nurture the habit of reading among UAE national families in Sharjah.
During reading week, the Knowledge Without Borders project promoted reading through a number of activities. The mobile library was parked outside the SWC library and students had the opportunity to browse and check out books from the Arabic collection.
Liberal studies students participated in a Reading as Therapy workshop conducted by psychologist, Hala Ablam. During the foundations assemblies, the project manager for Knowledge Without Borders, spoke to students about the initiative and 20 lucky students received a free box of Arabic books, so they could start their own Arabic library at home.
