The curator of the Qarawiyyin Library, Abdelfattah Bougchouf, opens an original version of a famous work, Muqaddimah,
written by historian Ibn Khaldun in the 14th century. The library in
Fez is one of the world's oldest working libraries, dating to the 10th
century when it was founded by a pioneering woman. The library is set to
reopen in May following a renovation.
