British Council in Egypt makes its digital library for free amid coronavirus

The British Council in Egypt is making its digital library available for free starting Tuesday until September 1, after closing its doors due to the coronavirus outbreak.

“During these difficult times, we want to continue connecting Egyptians with the best British knowledge and resources, and we see that the future of the UK depends on people from multi cultures who work and live together based on education, mutual understanding, respect and trust.” Elizabeth White, Director of the British Council in Egypt, said in a statement.

Users must first register their data at the council’s website to view the library, which includes a large number of high-quality cultural works in various forms.

The library also includes online collection of books, newspapers, magazines, dramas, musical concerts, electronic, and audio books, the council said in a statement, adding that it provides virtual visits to museums and tours of the Saqqara Pyramids via the internet.

Membership is only available to those above 18 years of age.
