R1bn boost for public libraries

Good news for the library sector! And at long last!

South Africa's libraries are to get a R1bn funds injection over the next three years, Arts and Culture Minister Pallo Jordan announced on Friday, News24 reported earlier.
Briefing the media at parliament, he described the plan to revitalise the country's deteriorating public libraries as a "massive, massive intervention". And this would help to create a culture of reading.
