REBRANDING EGYPT'S NATIONAL LIBRARY AFTER THE DAMAGE DONE FOLLOWING THE ATTACK ON NEARBY CAIRO POLICE HQ IN 2014.

It is one of the largest in the world with thousands of ancient collections. 
The Library holds more than 60,000 manuscripts in Arabic, Ottoman Turkish, Persian, and other languages. The collection’s contents span several centuries and several subjects, including religion, the natural sciences, mathematics, poetry, linguistics, history, and sociology. The Library’s holdings also include papyri, maps, calligraphic albums and panels, detached book covers, early printed books and periodicals, and more than 12,000 numismatic objects such as coins and medals.

تضم دار الكتب مجموعة نادرة من المخطوطات يبلغ عددها حوالي ستين ألف مخطوط، كتبت بالعربية والتركية والفارسية على مدى قرون طويلة في مختلف الفنون مثل العلوم الدينية، والعلوم الطبيعية، والرياضيات، والشعر، وعلوم اللغة، والتاريخ، وعلوم الاجتماع، وتضم أيضًا مجموعة من أوراق البردي، وخرائط، ولوحات وألبومات خطية، وأغلفة كتب منفصلة، وأوائل المطبوعات، ودوريات، وأكثر من 21 ألف مسكوكة من عملات وميداليات وغيرها.
UNESCO'S WORLD HERITAGE 
One hundred and forty Mamluk Qur'an manuscripts and bindings that can be securely dated to the Mamluk period (1250-1517 CE) by colophons and endowment and dedicatory statements. During this time, Cairo became the cultural, religious, and intellectual centre of the Islamic world. The manuscripts are almost unmatched for splendor, opulence, and size in the history of the Islamic arts of the book and they are key to our understanding of developments in Islamic calligraphy, illumination and bookbinding not only in Mamluk Egypt but throughout the Islamic world.
