On her part, Dr. Husniya Al-Ali said, “The participation of the Archive and the National Library stems from a firm conviction about the importance of raising future generations and developing them with a sound patriotic spirit based on sincerity and loyalty, inspired by the vision of the founder and builder Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan – may God rest his soul – and from the interest of our wise leadership in Childhood, which is the basis for shaping the personalities of the builders of the future. She pointed out that their participation stems from the interest of the Archive and the National Library in children and their future, which requires generations distinguished by their belonging to the homeland and their loyalty to its wise leadership, and who have the ability to actively participate in sustainable development, and to exercise a positive and efficient societal role.
Al-Ali explained that the Archive and the National Library presented, during their participation, a package of interactive workshops, foremost of which was the “The Biogrphy Game”, the new and innovative national game whose contents were inspired by the biography of the founding leader, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. The aims of this game are to enhance knowledge of the UAE’s history, heritage and national values. It is suitable for all ages, in addition to the purposeful and varied reading workshops that elevate children’s culture and develop their skills in creative reading, through a selection of booklets issued by the Archive and the National Children’s Library, namely: (Zayed from Challenge to Union), and (Khalifa Journey to the Future), and (Al-Hosn Palace) in addition to the interactive educational booklet (Watani Al-Emarat/ Emirates My Homeland), which provides children with extensive information on the history and heritage of the UAE, and introduces them to its great leaders.
Dr. Husniya added that some activities contribute to discovering children’s artistic talents and developing them such as the “Let’s Create” workshop (painting and clay), the “Let’s Sing” workshop (puppet theater for children), and the “Let’s Learn” workshops (candy stories). These workshops revive children’s imaginations by urging them to tell real and imaginary stories, stressing that the activities in which the Archive and the National Library participate are among more than 350 activities and events that were organized with various partners to celebrate the National Month of Reading, which is characterized by its diversity and interests of all members of society.
