George Libraries celebrated World Read Aloud Day on 5 February by visiting school, creches and hosted readings at some of the libraries.
World Read Aloud Day was a huge success in George and surrounds with children and adults enjoying the storytelling.
Their story that was chosen to be read to the youngsters is, A day to remember.
The library joined Nali’bali (isiXhosa for “here’s the story”), a national reading-for-enjoyment campaign.
It seeks to spark and embed a culture of reading across South Africa, so that reading, writing and sharing stories – in all South African languages – is part of everyday life.
