GEORGE NEWS - South Africa commemorates National Book Week from 4 to 9 September. The week is an initiative of the South African Book Development Council (SABDC) in collaboration with the Department of Arts and Culture.
National Book Week encourages the nation to value reading as a fun and pleasurable activity and showcases how reading can easily be incorporated into one's daily lifestyle. The commemoration coincides with International Literacy Day on 8 September.
The Grade 3A class of George Preparatory attended the story hour of Garelene Muller, a librarian at George Library, on Tuesday 3 September. The learners were all dressed up as their favourite storybook characters.
Muller said during National Book Week they make learners aware of the wonderful world of reading. She said most children have never visited a library and do not know that they can borrow books for free.
