On September 7, participants can start their sustainability journey. Presented by the Doha Environmental Actions Project, this session will allow participants to learn about how plastic pollution affects marine life in Qatar, as well as some of the simple changes they can make in their lives to help ease the problem.

On September 8, participants can take part in the fifth session of the Productive Researcher series. Part of the Postgraduate Peer Support Network Program, these lectures are aimed at encouraging researchers in Qatar through peer-learning with leading academics from around the world.

On September 13, participants can learn more about how the trafficking and smuggling of heritage items from libraries and archives are on the rise globally. In the MENA and West and Central Africa regions, this phenomenon is bigger due to the greater prevalence of conflict and insecurity. The guest speaker will be Dr. Alsharqi Dahmali, a member of the Advisory Council of the International Council of Museums in Morocco.

On September 14, parents and educators are invited to an event supporting children to get to the next level in their academic lives.

On September 18, the Science Book Forum returns with ‘What the Moon is Really Made Of.’ NASA scientist Dr. Essam Heggy will discuss his team’s latest discovery that the subsurface of the Moon might be richer in metals like iron and titanium than researchers previously thought. This finding could help paint a clearer picture than ever before of the relationship between Earth and the Moon.

On September 20, join the Library for “Readings in Qatar National Library’s Manuscript Collection: Prominent Copies of Hanafi Fiqh.” This is the fourth in a series of lectures and talks providing readings of rare historical works from the Heritage Library's collection of manuscripts.
