Welcome to Knowledge Without Borders

Knowledge without Borders (KwB) is a cultural initiative that forms part of a series of rich endeavors that have further enhanced the cultural stature of Sharjah over the past few decades. KwB seeks to promote reading and research among all members of community, especially children, because they are builders of the nation.

Promoting culture is not something new to the Emirate of Sharjah, which is celebrated as in the region and beyond as a cultural center and a bustling metropolis where people come seeking dialogue, intercultural exchange and explore sources of knowledge.

KwB brings people and books together, and stimulates individuals to navigate sources of knowledge and engage in enriching human dialogue. KwB has successfully distributed 42,366 free home libraries in Sharjah, covering every Emirati household across the emirate's regions. The libraries feature a selection of books on science, history and literature, suitable for all family members.
