New public library opens in Monnot neighborhood of Beirut

Just in the time for the summer holiday season, the Municipality of Beirut and ASSABIL - the Friends of Public Libraries Association - inaugurated a third municipal public library in the Monnot neighborhood of the capital on Friday.

The new library, which is located in the St. Joseph University Street next to the Monnot Theater, specializes in arts and culture. The public facility offers a wide array of books on film, theater, music, arts and architecture in three languages - Arabic, English and French.

Also, ASSABIL is launching its first mobile library - named "Kotabus" - which will circulate during the summer months between the Sanayeh Garden and the Seaside Corniche of Ain am-Mreisseh.

"Just as the already existing municipal public libraries in Bachoura [open since 2001] and Geitawi [open since 2004] the two new libraries are open to everybody interested in books and reading or just curious to discover new places and spaces," the organization said.

As public libraries they offer free loaning of books, magazines and films, free access to the Internet, storytelling events, as well as free cultural activities.

The municipal public libraries of Beirut are open this summer from Tuesday through Saturday according to the following schedules:
Bachoura and Geitawi: Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Storytelling: Friday afternoons starting at 4 p.m.
Monnot: Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Theater performances on selected evenings until 8 p.m.
Kotobus: Tuesday through Thursday at Sanayeh Garden from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Friday at the Corniche in Ain am-Mreisseh from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The two new library projects benefited from the support of the Ministry of Culture, the Council of Ile-de-France Region, the Canadian and French Embassies, the Open Society Institute, Heinrich Boell Foundation, Anna Lindh Foundation, Regional Office of UNESCO and Premiere Urgence.
