Assabil continues to hold various cultural activities in the municipal public libraries of Beirut, including regular activities such as the evenings of Oriental Music (listening and analyzing) with Mr. Elias Sahhab (every first Monday of the month at 7 pm at the Bachoura Public Library), the evenings of Western Music (listening and analyzing) with Ms. Rita Mahfouz (every last Friday of the month at 7 pm, at the Monot Library), the Cinema Club in cooperation with “Nadi li kul il nass”, showing social films followed by discussions with the filmmakers (every last Monday of the month at 7 pm, at the Bachoura Library) and the weekly story hour in all libraries (see calendar).
Public gatherings are also held with authors, like most recently with Mr Nader Siraj and Mr. Rami El-Zein. Finally, we are putting the final touches to our yearly program for the “National Reading Week” (Aprilxx-Aprilxx), which will include a series of cultural and educational activities that would encourage people from all generations and walks of life to read.
