The campaign will be running for two days in every campus.

To encourage the youth to make reading a lifelong habit, the Sharjah World Book Capital (SWBC) Office on Wednesday launched its ‘Book Friendly Schools’ campaign, a two-month sociocultural drive targeting 30 schools across the emirate.

A mini book fair; workshops on art, crafts and culture; interactive reading sessions; and 50 book giveaways marked the kickoff event at the Um Roman Girls School for Basic Education on Wednesday. It was held in collaboration with the Ministry of Education (MoE), Sharjah Education Council (SEC), and Sharjah Private Education Authority (SPEA).

The same activities will be organised in all other participating schools, with the campaign running for two days in every campus.

“The ‘Book Friendly Schools’ campaign is founded on one of the key pillars of SWBC’s year-long celebration programme: Promoting books as the essential source of knowledge,” said Marwa Al Aqroubi, project manager of SWBC 2019.

“Through this campaign, SWBC seeks to reinforce the intellectual skills of the young generation and help them form a lifelong attachment to the practice of reading, which will enable them to continue enriching their lives with knowledge and be influential agents of positive change in their communities.”
