Librarians Day book donation drive

Sol Plaatje University (SPU’s) Library and Information Services (LIS) in collaboration with the Library and Information Association of South Africa (LIASA) and Kimberley Public Libraries are hosting a Mandela Day Book Donation Drive to enrich the language resources of the !Xhunkwesa Combined School in Platfontein, to create a culture of reading and improve the educational outcomes for its learners.

The primary objective of the drive is to provide more fictional books written in Afrikaans as the first additional language at the school, and English which is the second additional language. The books will help develop the learner’s vocabulary and contribute to the overall language development, enabling learners to express their thoughts in either Afrikaans or English.

To be part of this great community engagement initiative, please donate Afrikaans and English book titles that will encourage learners to read, become comfortable in both languages and to cultivate the habit of recreational reading at the school.

Books can be dropped off at the SPU Library security desk from 14 June – 11 July 2023. All donated books will be handed over to the School on Mandela Day, 18 July 2023.

Together, we can cultivate the habit of recreational reading at !Xhunkwesa Combined School.
