The Qatar National Library (QNL) will host a range of engaging events throughout March to provide a platform for learning and discussion. 
Starting with a free training workshop titled ‘Content is First’, QNL will highlight ‘content’ as being the most important component of social media channels, and will explore the best ways to write and deliver material to a target audience.
In collaboration with Qatar Museums, QNL will host a free, hands-on workshop on the ‘History of the Kufic Script’. The workshop will shed light on the historical importance and beauty of the Kufic script, and will include a practical training session. 
QNL’s March book discussion will focus on ‘The Reason I Jump’, by Naoki Higashida; a book that provides a rare insight into the behaviour of autistic children.  
In addition, QNL will organise a free workshop on the ‘English Writing Process’. The workshop is tailored for those who want to deepen their understanding of the stages of English writing. 
In QNL’s Music Day, participants can take part in free training sessions on the effective use of selected online music resources, including Naxos, Oxford University Press, OverDrive and ProQuest. These platforms contain audio streaming of music recordings as well as journal articles and eBooks. 
QNL will also hold a free training workshop on how to use Microsoft Excel which will provide practical training on Excel’s basic functions, formatting and formulas. 
QNL’s will conduct a workshop on research skills covering four modules: Research Tool Kit, Search Strategies & Techniques, Citing Resources, and Writing Research Papers.
