DUBAI, 27th June, 2022 (WAM) — A group of twenty children from Senses Residential and Day Care for Special Needs (Senses) visited the Mohammed bin Rashid Library, Dubai’s latest beacon of culture and learning.
During their maiden visit to the Library, the children presented a painting of the new building. It was created by 30 children from Senses alongside artist Snehita Gehlot and took 4 days to complete.
A number of officials and employees from the Mohammed bin Rashid Library, led by Dr. Mohammed Salem Al Mazrouei, member of the Board of Trustees of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Library, welcome the group.
The children stopped at the “Children’s Library”, which has beautifully designed areas for reading and playing, as well as a space for various interactive activities that contribute to expanding the knowledge and learnings of the younger generations. The children’s library offers a variety of books and publications targeting children of determination, such as audio books and “Braille” books.
The tour at the Children’s Library was an opportunity for the group to interact within a spacious space that combines learning and fun, integrating the experiences of paper books and advanced technology by browsing the digital versions that are designed and presented in an attractive way.
