The city of Suez on the southern tip of the Suez Canal is set to get a new public library.
The venerable public library of Suez, which boasted 18,000 titles as well as documents on the region, was burned down by the Muslim Brothers during the 2011 Arab Spring uprising.
Now Suez MP Abdel-Hamid Kamal has secured a pledge from the Egypt Public Libraries organisation to help establish a new library in Suez, and one from Planning Minister Hala al-Saeed to finance the project. The library will be the largest that ever was in Suez, and would work to propagate culture and offer research facilities for students, academic researchers, intellectuals and writers in Suez.
Suez Governor Abdel-Meguid Saqr has allocated land for the project and promised to facilitate any and all measures needed for the project to see light.
