House of Wisdom, Sharjah

House of Wisdom, Sharjah

The House of Wisdom is a wonderful place to study, work or just read. You can’t yet borrow, but there are many comfortable places to sit with a book.

Take your pick – a desk, a comfy chair with complete privacy overlooking the Scroll Monument, an armchair, a niche in the wall, a mini bed in a cubby in the wall, all have individual lighting and USB ports.

You could also sit in the indoor or outdoor gardens. There are meeting rooms available to rent and what a lovely setting for that. There is also both a restaurant and a cafe to sit and read or meet up with fellow students or just for a lunch date.

You can find both Arabic and English books at the House of Wisdom and I found several related to my study so it’s worth looking if you’re a student. I can see I’m going to be a regular here.
