Appeal follows emptying of shelves in apparent misunderstanding at ‘fill a bag with books for £1’ event

Volunteers at Batley library who watched helplessly as the shelves were emptied in a book sale misunderstanding are urging those who took books to come back and help save the Grade II-listed building.

An advert posted on social media said customers could fill a bag with books from a sale table for £1, but sections of the library were “decimated” as people loaded library books into their bags, believing the library was closing down.
