Here’s what libraries mean to Jamila:

‘In this age of Artificial Intelligence and algorithms, the library remains one of the few truly non-commercial spaces with physical access to its resources and the world of books. Attending a library means you retain uncontrolled choice over what you read, how you think, and the forming of independent ideas without financial gain or profit to any other interest. To lose the library is to lose a precious human freedom.’
