South Africa's celebrating Library week

The Library and Information Association of South Africa (LIASA) is celebrating South African Library Week from 18-26 March 2017
with the theme “My Library, Your Library“ and sub-themes: “My Library, My Home”, “Mind your Library” and “Tell me about your

The National Launch will be held at the Sunrise View Primary and Secondary Schools, Bojanala, Retladirela, 14133 Molapo Drive, Rus-
tenburg, North West Province, on the 17 (Friday) of March 2017.The theme “My Library, Your library” takes libraries into the heart of
the community and strives to awaken a sense of ownership in each community member. Although not recognized as such, a library
nourishes and sustains its community. This theme encourages and motivates members of our society to reflect on the role and value of
libraries in their lives. The theme encourages people to take libraries to heart and to treat these as their homes so that destroying libraries
and burning books becomes unthinkable.

A message from the Library and Information Association (LIASA) president of South Africa for Library Week 2017
The theme “My Library, Your library” takes libraries into the heart of the community and strives to awaken a sense of ownership in
each community member. “My Library, Your Library” is a reminder to all library users that the library is a communal space that caters to
specific needs whether these are educational, social, recreational or informative. The sub-themes: “My Library, My Home”, “Mind your
Library” and “Tell me about your Library” encourage the conversation from the community’s perspective on the importance they attach to
libraries. It is intended that this dialogue will not only amplify the recognition of the place of libraries in communities but also that com-
munities will make input to the ideal present day library thereby, making it an indispensable part of their everyday lives.
