EKURHULENI AND UNISA PARTNERSHIP GIVES ACCESS TO THE LIBRARY AND UNISA MATERIAL
The City of Ekurhuleni celebrated library week through poetry and storytelling on Friday, 24 March, at the Germiston library in partnership with the University of South Africa (UNISA).
The library week celebration is one of many events the City will be hosting with UNISA to provide access to library material as well as library literacy training to Ekurhuleni library staff and patrons.
“Through the partnership, Ekurhuleni library patrons who are UNISA-registered students can have academic books couriered to their nearest library from the academic institution, ensuring easy and convenient access to study material,” explained Ekurhuleni’s Library Information and Educational Development Manager Zukiswa Peter.
In addition, library patrons who are not registered with the learning institution are also trained on how to access UNISA online material that may not be available from their local library at the time of their request.
Libraries participating in the UNISA partnership are Vosloorus, Benoni, Phomolong, Isaac Mokoena, Daveyton and Thembisa.
