ENCOURAGING pupils to read, Amanzimtoti Library hosted three book clubs to three Amanzimtoti and surrounding area schools in the 2015/2016 financial year.
“We took books and then collected them after pupils were finished reading them, afterwhich they had to write reviews on what they had read and these were pasted on the library display board,” said librarian Slie Mosia.

The pupils were also given information about rhino poaching, from the book The Last Rhino by Lawrence Anthony­, which was chosen as the One City One Book campaign for the 2015/2 year. Pupils then had to write stories based on that.

“When pupils finished their stories they submitted them to the library, which we read and chose the top three winners. Library staff returned to the schools to award pupils that participated in book club and creative writing,” Mosia­ said. - Supplied.
