‘Big Book Sale' at Dar Al Atta’a in Oman

Muscat: On April 1, books lovers will be able to buy some of the best used titles at reduced prices at the Dar Al Atta’a ‘Big Book Sale’ to be held at the Al Qurum Complex from 10 am to 1 pm.
The sale, which is regularly held on the first Saturday of every month, will remain open from 10 am to 10 pm on the day. With hundreds of great titles for adults and children, ranging from 500 baizas to OMR1, everyone can expect to find something of interest.
Sales proceeds will be used to support Maktabati, Oman’s first mobile library, which travels around the country, visiting schools and festivals. Dar Al Atta’a ‘Let’s Read Campaign’ has been promoting a love for reading among children in Oman
since 2007.
The campaign’s committee achieves its aims in a variety of ways, by setting up play rooms, libraries and reading areas in hospitals, schools and nurseries.
They also organise book clubs for teenagers and children.
If members of the public are interested in donating books or volunteering at the bookshop or for any of its activities, information can be obtained at the shop in the Al Qurum Complex.
The ‘Let’s Read Campaign’ opened its first bookshop in the country in 2015 at the Al Qurum Complex.
As Oman’s first charity bookshop, it has books for both children and adults.
Located at 116 on the first floor, the shop is open daily from 10 am to 1 pm and 5 pm to 7 pm.
