Joburg’s Public Libraries will be keeping learners active during these school holidays. They have a fun and educational programme planned for them.
Joburg’s Public Libraries offer a range of activities for children and young people at designated libraries during the October school holiday break. The activities are aimed at providing to children, and also promote library services and provide a safe environment for children during the holidays.
According to MMC for Community Development, councillor Nonhlanhla Sifumba, the activities are offered free of charge during library hours to both members and non-members of the libraries, in line with the City’s pro-poor development priority area, and increasing access that seeks meaningful redress.
