Book donations for ’Plain schools

Six Mitchell’s Plain schools will benefit from a book drive hosted by Liberty Promenade Shopping Centre in honour of Nelson Mandela Day on Sunday July 18.

Book donations will help grow school libraries in Mitchell’s Plain.

They are calling on Mitchell’s Plain residents and businesses to help collect 67 000 books, which will be distributed to Eastville, Eisleben Road, Portland, Searidge Park and West End primary schools, and Spine Road High School.

The schools were winners in the centre’s Next Generation 2020 competition, through which they won a share of R60 000 to improve their facilities.

All books, new and used, should be dropped off at the centre’s information desk and food court.
