Library Week

Library patrons enjoyed spending time with author Fatima Sydow..

Town Centre library was a hive of activity as people marked South African Library Week (from Monday March 19 to Saturday March 24), encouraging patrons to return overdue books, study guides and DVDs without being fined. City libraries are trying to reclaim more than 20000 overdue library items valued at nearly R2 million. As part of the Library Week celebrations, on Tuesday March 20, author Fatima Sydow read from her book, The Journey of Cape Malay Cooking with Fatima Sydow and students from the University of the Western Cape’s dentistry department spoke to Eastville Primary School pupils about taking care of their teeth and read them a story.
