The Younes and Soraya Nazarian Academic Library is the beating heart of Sapir College

In 2009, thanks to the remarkable generosity of the Nazarian Family, Sapir College inaugurated The Younes and Soraya Nazarian Academic Library. The new wing doubled the library's space to become the largest academic library in the Western Negev, located in a beautiful and accessible environment. 

Our team of experienced professionals provide full library facilities for Sapir's students, researchers, faculty and local communities. The library is equipped with a broad collection of academic books and journals, academic databases and media materials, as well as resources for sight and hearing impaired students.

The Younes and Soraya Nazarian Academic Library offers local residents library services, as well as a designated space for communal events, children and youth activities, seniors programs and an Art Gallery.
