The “National Electronic Library Project” is this year’s National Children's Day gift, the Prime Minister said in an announcement through the public Relations Department. (See here.)

The National e-Library project was organised under the King's Science Program for Sustainable Development and developed by the Ministry of Education “for the benefit of every child in the country,” he added.

“We invite all children, grandchildren and students to experience a new learning experience so that they can learn from anywhere, anytime, like the world is in our hands,” he said.

The Prime Minister said that in the academic year 2019, the Ministry of Education will create an electronic learning form so that students can download without having to pay for the purchase of a textbook.

An “Online Librarian Team” will check the integrity of information before importing it into the system, he added.
