Al Ain Public Library
Al Ain Municipality has embarked on an important journey to establish a world-class library for its residents. Prepared by a team of library planners and designers (including MSR, RHR Associates, and Library Consulting), this conceptual study establishes an innovative yet responsible library service model for Al Ain Municipality to serve its citizens through the year 2030.
It is based on a projected service population of 440,230 people living in the city by the year 2030. The conclusions drawn in this report are based on interviews with key stakeholders, city and Abu Dhabi staff, officials, and citizens. The planning team’s recommendations are benchmarked againstsignificant libraries from around the world that serve a comparable population size. The purpose of this report is to serve as an active blueprint for creating a world-class central library where none exists today.
