The UAE has a new law to get people to read. Workers will have time to read books at work. Companies will start libraries at their offices and factories. Shopping malls will have libraries that everyone can use. Even cafes will have books for customers to read.

The UAE's reading law is the idea of President Sheikh Khalifa. He made a 10-year plan to make reading a habit. He also wants students to read 20 or more books every year. The new law will mean the UAE can change quickly and be a world leader. We have the Internet, but books and libraries are still important.
