Cultural enrichment at Ithra
16 March 2020
We have one of the largest public libraries in the region, with a collection of over 240,000 titles in Arabic and English intuitively arranged across four floors and covering an extraordinary range of themes, topics and genres. We have something for everyone, whatever your age and interests.
Ithra Library has a wide array of electronic materials in Arabic and English, including audio books and e-books, with more resources to come. The library’s collection is 60% Arabic and 40% English and is available to be enjoyed in the library or at home.
In addition to the best workspaces in the Eastern Province, the library also hosts book signings and special talks by prominent local and international guests, story times for children, literary competitions and oral history sessions.
Ithra Library is the cradle of the iRead national reading competition, a flagship Ithra program that has attracted more than 50,000 participants from all educational levels since 2014.
