In celebration of Sharjah’s newest cultural achievement as the UNESCO World Book Capital 2019, the Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services has announced the new edition the Sharjah Used Books Fair to be held in February 2019. Marking the seventh edition of the event, the fair will be held under the theme ‘Give your Book a New Life’, and display ten thousand titles priced as low as AED 1 to 20.

The festival attracts a large number of visitors from across the UAE every year, offering them the opportunity to get their hands onto old literary treasures at throwaway prices on the one hand, and on the other, contribute to supporting the Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services’ projects dedicated to People of Determination. The host organisation pledges sales proceeds to their initiatives.

Since in 2006, the fair is organised in cooperation with several government and private entities, cultural institutions in addition to publishing houses and individuals who display their books during the fair as part of their participation in implementing Sharjah’s cultural objectives and delivering its humanitarian and social message.
