LIASA South African Library Week 2015 poster

South African Library Week, with the theme Connect @ your library” is being celebrated in libraries across the country from 14 - 21 March this year.

According to the Library and Information Association of South Africa  (LIASA) ths year's theme speaks to the power libraries can have in connecting people to each other, to knowledge and information, to print and electronic resources, to technology and professional support.

"Libraries must take the lead in being active community partners towards developing an informed and educated nation. This means providing access to information about health & hygiene, economic empowerment, poverty eradication and education in desired spaces that foster lifelong learning and knowledge exchange. This is further enhanced by skilled and proficient library staff who connect their communities to relevant and appropriate information & knowledge resources, emerging technologies, as well as dynamic and innovative programmes & services for personal and community development."
