Buried at the end of a story about Emirati reading habits:

Nora Khouri, an Emirati mother who participated in the workshop, said she tried to encourage her children to read, but there was a “shortage of libraries and factors that attract children to reading.”

“Unfortunately, I can’t find a library that I could take my children to. And we know libraries which ban children from entering,” she said.

No libraries? Banning children from entering them? That’s scandalous.
