Burj Al Luq Luq Social Centre

Founded: 1991
Project:  Refurbishing the library with books, tables, chairs.
Location: Jerusalem-Old City

Burj Al Luq Luq Social Centre library offers about 3000 books mostly in Arabic, making it the city’s most accessible library. The newspapers and magazines attract many adults, especially women. The library’s after-school educational support program is very successful and popular with the city’s youth, with the grades of those students participating improving dramatically. Many children and youth participate in art and competitive activities. However, as demands for services grow, the need to expand the library and provide more chairs is great. Your support to the Jerusalem Fund encouraged us to extend a grant to this library and allow the youth to spend their leisure time in a constructive, healthy and positive way.
