Permanent home for children’s library and charity bookshop in Oman

Oman Avenues Mall and Dar Al Atta’a, Oman’s largest NGO charity organisation, have partnered together to bring forward one of the largest free-to-public children’s libraries and charity bookshops in Muscat, Oman.

The Let’s Read Program, a Dar Al Atta’a initiative to promote reading, which was founded in 2007, will now be operational through a themed premises on the third floor of Oman Avenues Mall. The agreement to operate the library was endorsed between the senior management members of Oman Avenues Mall and Dar Al Atta’a on the 18th March.

The “Let’s Read Journey” project is scheduled to be fully operational by mid-2018, and is prospectively one of the latest of Oman Avenues Mall’s Corporate and Social Responsibility initiatives for the children and youth of Oman. At the heart of the project is the strategic vision to inculcate reading habits in the children and youth of Oman, by offering them an experience that indulges them in the joy and love of books and reading in a playful environment.
