Summer activity – Let’s go to the library

Let’s Read.Let’s have Fun.Let’s visit the Library..

The most important thing we can do in helping little A to develop his early love for reading is instilling the love for books.

For a little boy with desire,interest and curiosity to explore the world it is worth spending Sunday good time at the Children’s Library.

Hor Al Anz Public Library is situated in Al Nahda near Century Mall- Dubai.

Now the question is what we can expect from the children’s library..

Aside from this is an educational place for children,huge collection of books there are also designated art area to explore.

Lifetime membership is aed 75 and library card will be provided. You will be allowed to borrow books but need to return in given time.

They also offer story telling during weekdays and other varieties of activities especially this summer.

Since we only want to introduce this kind of environment with little A,we didn’t pay the membership although we stayed there for a while so he can be familiarized.
A good start for him to learn proper behaviors such as no running and shouting.

While inside he’s browsing the library displays and bookshelves and was looking for a particular books..

He was so keen in finding Dr. Seuss collection..haha

When he can’t find one he chose to read picture books instead.

And Baby Einstein book collection.


I guess in my opinion, it’s never too early for his age to discover the world of books.


Because this new adventure in his toddler years can be a lifetime experience..


No matter where you live in Dubai, find a library closest to where you live to share in a wonderful world of knowledge and entertainment.

  1. Hi! I landed on your blog after searching online for Dubai Public Library. I was wondering whether they have a good collection of fiction books for adults, you know a collection that’s worth their membership fees. Looks like little A enjoyed his library visit. And it appears like there was no one else besides you and him 🙂


    1. Hi Nadia! Thanks for stopping by. Yeah your right it’s only me and little A and no else. I never had the chance to go inside the library for adults as they directed us right away to Childrens Library.
      For children they are all ripped and old.
