The Book Shelter


The Book Shelter is a local initiative that focuses on making books accessible to the public- free of cost. Being passionate advocates of reading and education, the Book shelter strive to create the largest free library in the world.

By sourcing books from donations from the community, the Bookshelter create a sustainable project that recycles, promotes reading, and strengthens the reading culture in the U.A.E.

The Book Shelter is located in Maraya Community at the Maraya Art Centre on the 1st floor. The library is open and free to public, it is updated monthly and each person can take up to four books a month.

Please register the adopted books into the registration book provided. You are not required to return the books only if you wish to do so, or if you would like to donate books to The Book Shelter, there is a donation box beside the library to drop off your donations.
