It has been a big year for the Ajman libraries. The primary school library has been entirely redesigned, expanding into the surrounding area to create a larger, more modern looking area. Our fiction collection is now housed in the ‘outside’ area where sofas and chairs make a relaxed area for both staff and students to enjoy. The inner section has become home to our non-fiction collection and is a space for serious study and library lessons.
We have opened up the loan policy so that elementary students can take three books at a time. The result has been that this year we have been sending home nearly two thousand books every week!
The Secondary Library …..
A good example is lunchtimes when the library offers a quiet refuge for students wanting to escape the bustle of the playgrounds.
Both libraries have benefitted from a generous budget, and by the end of the year, we will have placed around three thousand new titles into the library stock.
However, libraries are as much about people as resources, and here we need to acknowledge the excellent work from Ms Khulood and Ms Al’aa and a whole team of volunteers who have helped the library run so smoothly.
