National Book Week
6th September 2021 - 12th September 2021
South Africa commemorates National Book Week from 6 to 12 September. It is an initiative of the South African Book Development Council (SABDC) in collaboration with the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture.
Since 2014, Cotlands has a long-standing partnership with the organisers of National Book Week to help promote the importance of play and reading to young children as a daily activity. Over the years, Cotlands has enjoyed setting up pop-up toy library spaces at different municipal libraries around the country.
National Book Week is an important initiative to promote the value reading as a fun and pleasurable activity and to showcase how reading can easily be incorporated into one’s daily lifestyle.
National Book Week also coincides with International Literacy Day on 8 September.
