As a precautionary measure to protect our members, the Old Library will be closed as of Wednesday, March 18th.

 

WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING DONATIONS AT THIS TIME.

Library Information


Temporarily Closed


In keeping with the new directives issued by the UAE Government today asking all residents to stay at home and venture out only for emergencies/groceries, we would urge you to adhere to guidelines, and not worry about returning your Library books in our dropbox.

This will minimize the risk, both to you and to our volunteers who have to clear the boxes.  

We will be extending the deadline on the books in most cases. Unfortunately our system doesn’t allow us to renew books for memberships that are coming up for renewal – in these cases, we will be making a note of the books and will give you enough time to return the books once we reopen.  

We hope and pray that the situation will get better soon. Take care, stay home and stay safe.
