Win library books for your school

5 March 2020

The Department of Arts and Culture, in conjunction with the Library and Information Association of South Africa (LIASA), has declared that South African Library Week (SALW) 2020 will be celebrated from 16 to 22 March 2020. The theme will be “Libraries: Your Partners for Life”.

In celebration of SALW 2020, the WCED’s Education Library and Information Services (EDULIS), in partnership with NB Publishers, offers an exciting opportunity for one WCED school to win library books to the value of R2 000 for their school library.

Schools are encouraged to enter the competition electronically and answer the following questions:

  • Describe what you have planned for SALW 2020.
  • What are the objectives of your planned event/exhibition?
  • Who is your target audience and how do your SALW 2020 activities impact on them?
  • Why do you think the judges should consider your school library for the prize?

The closing date for the competition is Friday, 24 April 2020 and the winner will be notified telephonically or via email by Thursday, 7 May 2020.

The winning school will be announced, and the prize handover will take place on Thursday, 21 May 2020 at EDULIS during NB Publishers’ School Librarian Day.
