South African Library Week

Event Details

The Library and Information Association of South Africa (LIASA) is celebrating South African Library Week from 16-23 March 2018 with the theme Libraries: heart of the Community.

The launch event will be held on Monday, 19 March 2018 at the National Library of South Africa, Cape Town campus.

The theme “Libraries: heart of the Community” re-emphasizes the idea that libraries belong to the community and are central to it. All libraries, whether it is a School, Public, Academic or Special library, are at the heart of their communities, to offer vital resources to address community needs, and are places where the community gathers. They are open to their own communities, and provide essential services to help people and neighborhoods thrive. From internet access and help with homework, to story-times and language programs, libraries provide free accessible space, information resources and services for everyone.
