SHARJAH: The Sharjah Public Library, a subsidiary of the Sharjah Book Authority, SBA, has organised a series of lectures and interactive workshops in October to encourage children, young adults, and their parents to read and educate themselves on various topics including health, science, and other fields. The activities were also aimed to raise awareness on cybercrimes.

On 4th October, the library celebrated International Teacher’s Day, by organising a workshop titled ‘My Teacher’ for children aged 7-10 years. Children had the opportunity to design a greeting card for their teachers and express their appreciation for their efforts to help them succeed.

Another workshop titled ‘Credit Cards Fraud and Counterfeiting and Fraud protection tools’, will be organised on 17th October. It aims to provide an overview of cybercrime, credit cards fraud activities, and the accepted international standards to ensure information security, protection, and confidentiality. It will be conducted by Dr Bassel Mohammed, an information security expert.

Another workshop titled, ‘Stop Motion’ will enable children to use the ‘Stop Motion Studio’ app to transform the story they have read at the beginning of the workshop into an animated movie using the visual effects. The workshop is designed for children aged 8-12 years.

On 27th October, under the theme ‘Cloud of Joy’, a workshop presented by Emirati writer Maitha Al Muhairi will be conducted. The workshop will target high school students and discuss the story titled ‘Cloud of Joy’ in an interactive session. Participants will also obtain a handbook that is handcrafted by each participant.
