Technology is our friend and we are sharpening our innovation to bring book rich activities to our communities. Funda Bala will definitely be social distancing this September. Help us find Funda Bala … more to come.
#BUYABOOK remains a cornerstone of NBW and we count on your support to bring the magic of stories to book-scarce communities.
We encourage book lovers to #BUYABOOK and donate the books from participating bookshops and to our communities during National Book Week.
South Africa’s reading awareness week, widely known as National Book Week, is dedicated to encouraging book reading and will be hosted from 07-13 September. The week-long reading awareness campaign sees each of the provincial hosts create a vibrant atmosphere on a selected day aimed at inspiring children, youth and adults in the communities to read. We look forward to sharing our unfolding programme with you.
In the meantime, connect with us on social media to let us know how you plan to spread the magic of books during National Book Week.
