Next library week will be in September 2022

The City of Cape Town’s libraries welcomed back 2 798 outstanding books, magazines, DVDs and other material. Patrons took advantage of the fine free period, which coincided with South African Library Week (SALW) from 14 to 20 March to return items.

‘South African Library Week is a highlight on our calendar for many reasons, as it not only celebrates the values of libraries, but also allows patrons to return overdue items. Our librarians are ecstatic at the number of items returned as it means so many more can enjoy the items beings offered.

‘Libraries provide countless resources including educational materials, scientific publications, fiction and non-fictional titles, but these are limited. We rely on our patrons to return items when they are done. Keeping an item simply deprives someone else of accessing it,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services and Health, Councillor Patricia van der Ross.

Manenberg Library's Gratitude Tree for Library Week!
Children were able to 'leaf' a note, telling us all about the books and services they're grateful for 🥰📚🍂🍃


Booked for success: City library helps learner to the finish line.

The City of Cape Town’s Ocean View Library was surprised by a visitor who had completed matric last year. He attributes his success to the reading programme he attended at the library.

Ocean View librarian, Fatima Kiel, was surprised with a visit by a former student of the Library Reading Programme, Leroy Davids.

Leroy started with the programme at Ocean View Library when he was in Grade 4 in 2013. The quiet and shy young boy had difficulty in his grade with the English language.

His mom and sister contacted the library to register him with their Friday reading classes.

Leroy persevered and committed to the programme until Grade 7 when he completed the programme’s four reading and writing booklets.

Combined with reading library books which Ms Kiel helped him choose and her assistance with his school work and projects, he was able to progress each year.

When Leroy visited the library last week, it was to share the news that he had passed Matric in 2021 and wanted to thank Ms Kiel for the many hours spent helping him.

Leroy dreams of joining the South African Navy.

Tieners wat van lees hou maar nie altyd genoegsame tyd op hande het om gedurende skoolkwartale dik boeke te verslind nie, sal baie opgewonde wees om hierdie pragtige publikasie in hulle hande vas te hou. Iemand wat verdrink en ander verhale bevat kortverhale geskryf deur onder andere gunstelingskrywers. Die titels van die kortverhale is genoeg om jou lus te maak om te begin lees. Iemand wat verdrink en ander verhale is saamgestel deur Fanie Viljoen.

Die jeugroman Op die maat van Maya, geskryf deur Nerine Ahlers en Alet Steenkamp, is 'n pragtige liefdesverhaal, maar vertel ook 'n dieper storie oor die band tussen 'n meisie en haar ouers. Die verhaal sal beslis aanklank vind by musiekliefhebbers, asook almal wat van 'n bietjie liefde hou.

Hierdie boeke is beskikbaar by Manenberg biblioteek, bring jou biblioteekkaart en neem dit uit, jy sal nie spyt wees nie.
