Every lunchtime from Tuesday to Thursday this coming week of Festival, you can buy great books at good prices, with proceeds used for the South African Library for the Blind (SALB’s) Mandela Day projects.
The Library buys or obtains books which are transcribed into Braille, or used by their narrators to create audio books. After that, instead of being left unused on their shelves, the SALB holds an annual book sale, during the National Arts Festival, the proceeds of which are used for a Mandela Day project by the Library.
SALB staff go out to the chosen charity, provide of their time, and use the proceeds of the book sale to provide much needed equipment or teaching aids etc. for the chosen project for the year.
Look out for the team at their table at these times:
Tuesday – 12pm-2.30pm – Checkers shopping centre
Wednesday 5 July – 12pm-2.30pm – Checkers shopping centre
Thursday 6 July – 12pm-2.30pm – Outside the SALB in High Street
The teams from Universal Knowledge Software (UKS) and SALB are busy finalising the outstanding modules and the system should be up and running tentatively by end October 2018.
In the meantime the Circulation Staff continue to manually select books based on your reading interests.
