A new chapter for Alex community


    Community members will have access to books 24/7.

    The City of Johannesburg in partnership with Massmart South Africa has donated another library for the Alexandra community.

    The City and the company had earlier this year donated a library structure made of steel which accommodates more than 500 books, to the people of the township.

    The latest library also contains more than 500 books with a variety of genres including African fiction, general fiction, non-fiction, politics, entrepreneurship and motivational books by global business leaders.

    Speaking at the handover ceremony at Three Square Community Sports Centre, Ziphezinhle Msimango of Massmart said the company had embarked on a war to bring back the culture of reading in communities.

    Harry Nakeng of the Community Development Department, Region E in the City of Johannesburg lauded Massmart for their initiative and called on all corporations to do the same in communities they operated in.
