Drop all and read for 67 minutes on Mandela day

Nelson Mandela International day commemorates the lifetime of service Nelson Mandela gave to South Africa and the world. It was launched on his birthday, 18 July. Every year, thousands of South African’s come together on the 18th of July to offer their time and talents, for at least 67 minutes, to charities, orphanages, schools and many other causes.

In celebration of Mandela day Midvaal libraries will present a Drop all and read Programme

Venue: Bantu Bonke Town Hall on the 18 July 2017

Time :   10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The objective of the day is to inculcate the culture of reading amongst our youth. Children will be requested to drop everything hold hands and form a human chain as stories are read to them.

We invite kids’ ages 7-14 residing in Bantu Bonke/Panfontein to join us on this fun-filled event with lots of entertainment for kids.
