The Rustenburg Local Municipality to Officially Launch Mzansi Libraries On-Line Project.
The municipality will on Friday launch the Mzansi Libraries On-Line Project whose overall objective is to empower South African communities to improve their lives through the provision of free access to information.
Mzansi Libraries On-Line (MLO) is a programme of the National Library of South Africa, in collaboration with the Department of Arts and Culture and the provincial library services in all nine provinces. It is part of the Global Libraries Programme, which has benefited some developing countries. The Global Libraries Programme is based on the reality that libraries have the potential to serve and engage the entire community through targeted outreach programmes aimed at improving the lives of information-deprived communities who currently lack adequate access to information needed to live healthy and productive lives.
Members of the media are invited as follows:
Date: Friday, 24th March 2017
