On #MandelaDay 2019 the House of Learning Library in Groenheuwel was handed over to the municipality. Library staff will now start moving books and equipment into the new building in preparation for the grand opening later this year.
The ceremony was attended by various members of the technical team, the municipality and the community.
Vernon Moses from the Safe Node Area Committee (SNAC) expressed pride as “much of the work was done by local labour”. Michael Jacobs, also from SNAC, referred to this project as a “true partnership” between the community, VPUU, and the municipality.
Mercia Sias, the head Librarian declared the library “a dream come true”.
