Qatar National Library (QNL) will be running a series of events for people of all ages throughout June 2020.
All of these courses will take place through the Microsoft Teams conferencing application.

‘Makers at Home’ will allow students to discover a variety of new digital skills, including gaming, digital electronics, 3D modelling, coding and app development, and virtual reality.
The free online camp will help create the digital developers of the future. One can visit the website for details of dates and how to enrol.
On 8th June, heritage lovers can attend an online training workshop, titled ‘Preservation and Conservation of Manuscripts’. Experts from the Manuscript Restoration Center at Al Abbas Holy Shrine Library in Iraq will guide you through the process of restoring and preserving documents of historical value across the Gulf region.
Also on 8th June, the library will be doing a deep-dive into the art of storytelling for children with learning difficulties. This online session for parents and caregivers of children with learning difficulties will introduce effective storytelling techniques to inspire their children’s imaginations.
On the same day, the library will run a course looking at apps for language therapy for children. Mental Imagery Therapy for Autism (MITA) is a unique, early-intervention application for children with language delay and autism. MITA trains mental integration and language, starting with simple vocabulary, and progressing towards higher forms of language, such as adjectives, verbs, pronouns, and syntax.
In a lecture to be held on 15th June, attendees will learn new techniques to speak with confidence in front of an audience. They will also learn the benefits of writing and practising, and how to find a balance between their voice and body language.
