Description:
DOHA, QATAR (RECENT) (REUTERS) LIBRARY EXTERIOR SIGN OUTSIDE LIBRARY READING (Arabic/English): "QATAR NATIONAL LIBRARY" PEOPLE WALKING INSIDE LIBRARY EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF QATAR NATIONAL LIBRARY, SOHAIR WASTAWY, TALKING TO EMPLOYEE (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF QATAR NATIONAL LIBRARY, SOHAIR WASTAWY, SAYING: "Facilitating the availability of large collections (of books) and specialised databases has undoubtedly easing access to these resources for researchers and readers. The biggest proof is the turnout and the number of visitors we've had so far. More than quarter million people have visited us so far. This is a big number for a small city like Doha. More than 380,000 books have been borrowed." HERITAGE SECTION (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF QATAR NATIONAL LIBRARY, SOHAIR WASTAWY, SAYING: "What really distinguishes the library's architecture, other than the fact that it is an open space, is that as soon as you walk into the library you see the heritage section. The heritage section is located at the centre of the building, six metres below the ground level". BOOKS IN HERITAGE SECTION VARIOUS OF MAN USING SELF-SERVICE MACHINE VISITOR TURKI AL-MUTAIRI BROWSING THROUGH BOOK (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) VISITOR, TURKI AL-MUTAIRI, SAYING: "The library meets the needs of every reader. It hosts books from all over the world, from intellectuals to writers, it has everything. I thank the state of Qatar and library management for this library. It came at the right time". VARIOUS OF CHILDREN READING VISITOR, MOHAMED SALIM, STUDYING (SOUNDBITE) (English) VISITOR, MOHAMED SALIM, SAYING: "I think that having a book, come here face to face read and in the meantime you research the internet, giving effective information. This place is an amazing place because it's got wealth of knowledge here, wealth of books. It's like a rain of books. I mean when I come here, I don't want to leave this place until they tell me to go out. It's very quiet, you know, very independent. You can focus on your studies very well".
