Sorry, but I have to say that the library looks like an absolute disgrace!
I agree with Moayad. The library looks really bad!
Is it a men's club?
2 Anonymous: It isn't a club, it is an area similar to Bastakiya in Dubai. Kuwaiti artists could apply and perhaps to get a studio there to work, to be inside the artistic community. All the others are welcome as the visitors, researchers and guests.
2 Moayad and Fatima: Yes, the library doesn't have this value, how it should be, some books are broken and need to be repaired. I hope smth will change with time.
