This is a petition drive to keep the Myki library open. [Petition Closed]

No Greek library should close in Thraki

We have been informed that under the proposed cuts, the Children’s and Adolescent Libraries (a non-profit legal entity, financed and supervised by the Ministry of Education) could be abolished, resulting in the closing of several libraries, one of which is the library of the village of Myki in Thrace. The closure of a library has negative consequences in any neighborhood and community. However, the closure of libraries in Thrace, especially the only Greek library in the Pomak villages surrounding Xanthi and Rhodope, located at the village of Myki, will have far greater consequences.

We ask the Greek government to: 1) keep open and expand the Greek library in Myki, 2) support the needs of the Pomaks, who have been fighting for recognition and cultivation of their Hellenic identity, and 3) instead of closing libraries, create new programs that will attract and renew the interest of children and adults in learning.
