Wynberg Public Library recently invited Precious Angels Pre-School learners to participate in its Budding Bees reading programme.

“The children were asked to read their favourite story to a friend, a parent or even a pet. Parents or teachers were asked to record this and send the video clips to us,” explains Nadia Ismail, principal librarian at the library. Ten video clips were received, showing the little ones reading enthusiastically.

On Thursday 18 February,the principal of the pre-school Sumaya Obaraya attended the programme’s prize-giving event at the library. Obaraya received wooden puzzles for the children and the school. It was all made possible by Liz Brunette, councillor for ward 62, through the ward allocation funding. The children also received wrist bands and pencils.

National Library Week will be held from Monday 15 to Sunday 21 March with the theme “Libraries Matter”.

A display with a filler heart will be set up in its foyer area for patrons to drop in a comment, saying why they think libraries matter. Lucky draws will be held during the week with some exciting prizes.

“We encourage our patrons to return their long-overdue items during this week which will also be a fine-free week,” adds Ismail.

  • Wynberg Public Library hosts a number of virtual programmes on its Facebook page: @wynberg.library.
