Batley Library Closure
On 26th January, three children from Warwick Road Primary School, Maryam Daji, Mufais Mohammed and Maroof Vachhiyat, ventured to Batley Library. Dismayed to learn that there were murmurs that the library might be closed, the children wrote a library detailing why this should not be the case.
During the public meeting, the children were invited on stage to read their letter aloud. They received a round of applause. A copy of the letter was taken to be framed in the library.
Additionally, a local journalistic was also at the event, and chose to write an article on it - this was published on the 2nd February, and an online version can be found below.
