Circulation at the Young People’s Library

Posted on

External circulation is underway for those with annual membership in the Young People’s (YP) Library at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina. The YP Library serves teenagers from the age of 12- 18 years, providing books, encyclopedia and periodicals in all fields of knowledge from History, Philosophy and Literature to Arts, Sports and Social Sciences. A set of rules has been specially designed to regulate circulation in the YP Library. Members can freely borrow books (except references and periodicals) for two weeks at most, or else pay a monetary fine in case of taking-out any other book.   The YP Library’s main objective is to improve the reading and research skills of teenagers. Web-accessed computers, televisions and videos are available in the Library as well as many cultural activities organized by the librarians. Seminars, workshops, cultural lectures and social programs are periodically organized with the objective of increasing the youth’s cultural awareness and their interaction among each inside and outside the Library.
