The library is located next to the Tubas government‘s administrative building. With support from Seraj, the space was renovated from a dusty, decaying basement to a beautiful, safe space filled with colors and light and thousands of books for all ages. There is a section specifically for small children as well as a space to hold activities, with a large table and space for art supplies. There is a large section for college students and adults to read or to hold meetings.
The new library opened with much excitement and hope for the future. We look forward to meaningful and long-lasting relationships with the community.
We celebrated with the municipality of Tubas as we launched their new library, and Seraj’s 10th! This is Seraj’s largest library and will serve the greatest number of people. Tubas is home to 26,000 people and is located between Nablus and the Jordan Valley. Hundreds of people attended the grand opening, which was celebrated with the governor, the mayor, municipality council members and the local girls’ school, who performed a beautiful song about Palestine.
