H.H. Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, allocated AED4.5 million for the purchase of the latest publications from publishing houses participating at the Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF).

The move aims to provide Sharjah public and government libraries with various modern publications in all Arab and foreign scientific, literary and cultural fields, and to update the knowledge content of the libraries, which constitute a major reference for researchers and readers in the Emirate of Sharjah.

The grant also contributes to supporting publishers - around 1,632 Arab and foreign publishers from 83 countries - participating in this year's SIBF.

Publishing houses offer various cultural publications covering all fields, interests and age groups.
