ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Saturday, January 30th 2016 [ME NewsWire]
The Vehicles and Drivers Licensing Department at Abu Dhabi Police has set up a reading library at the Customer Service Center, at the Department’s main building. The library was established as per the “Reading Library for All”, in cooperation with the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, and within the framework of the “2016 Year of Reading” initiative in the UAE.
The Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority provided the library with a diverse collection of books, with the aim of spreading culture and knowledge amongst community members.
Brigadier Mohamed Mayouf Al Ketbi, Head of the Vehicles and Drivers Licensing Department at Abu Dhabi Police, revealed that the “Reading Library for All” contributes to promoting community partnership between the Abu Dhabi Police and society and with public and private institutions. “This partnership provides valuable opportunities for mutual cooperation, which is evident in the initiative with the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, which offered a set of publications for the benefit of the Department’s staff members and customers,” he said.
Brigadier Al Ketbi revealed the department’s determination to implement the initiative across all of its service centers in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and the Western Region. He noted that the library allows customers to read while waiting at the center, in a bid to expand their knowledge base, and help them acquire the valuable information included in the publications.
Brigadier Al Ketbi expressed his heartfelt appreciation for the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority for its kind support for the initiative, which aims to encourage community members to read, by enriching the library with a wide array of valuable publications.
For his part, Abdullah Majid Al Ali, Head of the Libraries Department at the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, said in this regard: “Our decision to bring a diverse set of publications issued by the Authority in support of the ‘Reading Library for All’ initiative reflects our keenness to reach out to all society segments with valuable books. This approach stems from our firm belief that reading is an essential component to ensure the progress and development of humans, to promote building, order and modernization. Reading boosts knowledge and innovation and transfers others’ experiences, which in turn allows openness to world cultures, in order to closely examine their literary, cultural and scientific work. This would help us reach the desired creativity in all fields of knowledge.”
