Reading Beyond Basic Literacy

Maktaba is the first public children's library in Qatar. Help us grow by spreading the word wide and far!


Maktaba provides a place to inspire children and their parents to fall in love with reading, learning and the acquisition of knowledge. It is a space where imagination comes to life through books, play, and thoughtfully conceived programming for children of all ages


Our primary purpose is to encourage children of all ages towards a love of reading in order to achieve their academic, intellectual and creative goals.


We believe that every child has the capacity to reach his/her full potential. We design programs to help children develop the skills and the confidence to achieve their potential.


We encourage children to explore the world and use creativity to reflect on their experiences. We also encourage children to contribute to their community by providing outlets for their natural curiosity and fostering dialogue.
