The Old Library Reopens!

It is with great pleasure that we would like to announce that The Old Library will be reopening on Wednesday, November 14th, 2018. Our timings will remain the same (10am-6pm).

We will also be having our regular story time session on the 11th of November at 10.30 with Louise! Should you wish to sign up for this event, please contact us and remember to include your membership number.

With regards to your membership – if you have continued to keep your membership with us and not collected a refund, we have extended your membership expiry date for the time we were closed. Please ask the Librarian on shift for more information.

The Old Library is in the Gold & Diamond Park – Building 7 (next to Just Kidding).

a. Take Exit 40 (the one just after the FAB metro station) and turn right towards the metro station.
b. Park outside the Gold & Diamond Park – there’s plenty of RTA parking outside the First Abu Dhabi bank as well.
c. Walk up to the Gold & Diamond Park (entrance is just near the metro station) – you will see a road going through between Soho Café and Dubai Star Gold – Look for Just Kidding and we are next to them

2. If you are coming from Sharjah:
a. Take Exit 39 and then follow the signs to Umm Suqeim
b. Stay in the left lane and follow signs to Hadaeq Mohammed bin Rashed Road
c. Immediately move over to the right and follow signs to Sharjah – you will then loop back onto Sheikh Zayed Road and you can then take Exit 40 and follow instructions as above.
