You’d be amazed at everything that goes on in your local public library! This is a unique opportunity to be part of a guided tour of the Bessie Head library – the parts you’ve seen, and the parts you haven’t – and hear about what goes on there. Find out how the materials in the library are catalogued in the Cataloguing department; visit the archives/legal deposit section, where everything published in South Africa has to be deposited; find out more about the research section, children’s library, and computer facilities available to the public; learn about the meeting spaces available for you to use; hear about the poetry group, and the creative writing group, and all the other activities going on ‘behind the scenes’. This class will be conducted in English

Bring one of the following:
A promise to tell one other person all the wonderful things that happen in your library!
A5 notebooks for activities run by the library
Coloured paper for activities run by the library
Crayons for activities run by the library
Plain white A4 printing cardboard
