Sharjah International Book Fair

This bus has been parked outside Sharjah International Book Fair for the duration of the festival.

It is a Knowledge Without Borders bus, an initiative that is attempting to set up every Emirati home with a library of books. So. Cool.

Each library includes 50 titles from different genres, appealing to various ages and interests. Topics include religion, science and health, as well as fictional novels and children’s story books.

“Knowledge has no borders and that is why we are aiming to achieve the maximum coverage across all the areas of Sharjah, so that even people who are usually not exposed to books can expand their literary knowledge,” said Marwan Jassim Al Sarkal, deputy head of the organising committee of Knowledge without Borders.
