Region’s biggest library in Dubai

June 14, 2022

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, inaugurated the Mohammed bin Rashid Library, which faces Dubai Creek, on Monday. The library is located in Al Jaddaf and will open to the public on Thursday.

It is a bookstand-shaped library that was built for Dh1 billion ($272.3 million). The building, which has a total size of 54,000 square metres, is structured in the shape of a wooden stand known as a ‘rahl.’

The Mohammed bin Rashid Library contains nine specialized libraries spread across seven levels, with over a million print and digital volumes.

The General Library, the Emirates Library, the Young Adults Library, the Children’s Library, the Special Collection Library, the Maps and Atlases Library, the Media and Arts Library, the Business Library, and the Periodical Library are among the nine libraries.


There are also over 6 million research papers, 73,000 music scores, 75,000 films, approximately 13,000 articles, and over 5,000 historical print and digital periodicals. In addition, there are about 35,000 print and digital publications from across the world.


To reply to visitors’ inquiries, the library will integrate cutting-edge technology and artificial intelligence, such as automated storage and an electronic book retrieval system, self-service kiosks, a book digitization laboratory, and smart robots.
