Al Kotob Khana library launches book fair
By- Fatma Khalil:

A new initiative has been launched by the Egyptian library Al Kotob Khana in Maadi, Cairo, which will sell used books for EGP 10 to 15 each.

“Due to the high price of books, which prevents people from buying them, we collect used English and Arabic books so that thier owners may resell them at a low price in the library,” said Mohamed Shafiq, book fair organizer.

Shafiq added that the event is held on the first Friday of every month from 12 pm to 7 pm, when sellers and buyers meet. He also said that Al Kotob Khana organizes monthly cultural events including musical concerts, book-signing ceremonies, film screenings, as well as drawing workshops for kids.
