We are looking forward to the official launch of the new community space in Alserkal Avenue next week. A4 is a warehouse space with seating, wifi and a marvellous little cafe with delicious sandwiches and juices.
There is also a boutique store with concept goodies, a small screening room in the back and a cute little function room.
But, what we love most is the “One Book at a Time” scheme to fill the numerous bookshelves that line the walls. It is an invitation to leave a book, any kind of book in any language, with a message inside about why you think someone should read it. Then, when people are hanging out in the space, they can be entertained by dipping in and out of the books and expanding their horizons.
* A4 will launch officially on Monday at 7pm, event is free and open to the public.
