New Library for the Community Of Boekenhouthoek

DV Mnguni

The ANC is committed to work towards a community library in every municipal ward, and therefore views the recent opening of the state-of-the-art Zithabiseni Public Library in Boekenhouthoek in Mpumalanga, as a proud moment in fulfilling its 2014 Manifesto assertion. The Zithabiseni Public Library boasts of a study area, media room used for watching educational materials, and a play area for children which will be utilized by children and teachers for storytelling and play activities. There is also a computer room with internet and Wi-Fi access.

This library will service six high schools, eight primary schools and 10 pre-schools within the Bomandu community, which is made up of three wards. The ANC commends the setting aside of R30 million for building of new libraries in that province, with R10 million budgeted for the upgrading of two libraries in Mashishing and Standerton. The ANC also believes that the speeding up of the provision of libraries and library resources will assist its literacy drive.

I thank you
