ABU DHABI, 21st June, 2022 (WAM) — The Abu Dhabi Arabic Language Centre (ALC), part of the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), will be promoting its diverse collection of published titles with an event at Deerfields Mall this month.
Running until 3rd July at the shopping centre in the Al Bahia area of Abu Dhabi, the ‘Khazanat Al Kutub’ initiative will offer more than 450 titles, with a total of over 2250 books, at affordable prices for all types of readers.
The event aims to promote the ALC’s publications in reaching the widest audience of readers by making the published works available for sale to all visitors to Deerfields Mall.
“The ‘Khazanat Al Kutub’ initiative was a tremendous success when it was launched for the first time in September 2021, where it helped strengthen the culture of reading among community members, motivating them to make it a daily habit,” said Saeed Hamdan Al Tunaiji, Acting Executive Director of the ALC.
“This year’s event will again give the public access to a wide collection of books in various fields in an innovative way. It will also align with the strategic objectives of the ALC, which include advancing knowledge and establishing direct communication with the public through a portfolio of initiatives and projects that clearly impact the UAE’s cultural scene.”
The Khazanat Al Kutub event at Deerfields Mall is open daily from 10 am to 10 pm.
