Qatar National Library (QNL) participates in the Garangao festival organized by Qatar Foundation in the Holy month of Ramadan every year to celebrate the traditional mid-Ramadan children’s festival “Garangao”.  The “Garangao” festival features a number of entertaining activities, including arts and crafts, storytelling, games, pony rides, time-honored folk songs, and amusing puppet shows for children. And apart from receiving the traditional Garangao gifts and sweets, the children also will be given complimentary books.

“Garangao” is a middle of Ramadan tradition that is widely celebrated by children across Qatar and the Gulf region. On this night, children walk around their neighborhoods singing traditional songs that mark the occasion and receive gifts and bags of sweets from their elders.
