As part of Maktaba Children’s Library World Book Day celebration, renowned children’s author Kay Woodward (www.kaywoodward.co.uk),  a member of the Quantum family, held two enthralling story-time reading sessions for the library’s younger members.

Kay’s story-time sessions were part of Quantum’s commitment as premier partner to support the library and its activities which raise awareness on the importance of reading among young children.

Quantum’s Q-munity CSR programme, started in 2013 and is aligned to the goals of the Qatar National Vision 2030 and the Qatar National Development Strategy 2011–16.  The programme aims to actively add long-term value within the community by interacting with local organisations and supporting health, sport, community and educational initiatives.

World Book Day (www.worldbookday.com) is an annual celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
