Making a difference is not just about becoming involved with good causes; it is about implementing expertise in an innovative manner to achieve sustainable improvement for society. This is the motto of the NWU Mafikeng Campus Library when they donated books and gave support to several school libraries during the National Book Week, which took place from 7 to 12 September.

Schools that benefited were Mococe Secondary School, which received a donation of 150 books and a revamp of the library. The books were part of the selection that was donated by the Rotary Club in Johannesburg. The library was initially stocked using old books.

At the Moshawane Primary School, a library was established which was made possible by providing unused shelves and the donation of 190 books. Staff from the NWU Mafikeng Library assisted with the arrangement of books and trained the teachers.

The dream of a library also came true at the Slurry Primary School when its library was launched by the Director of the Campus Library, Dr Mathew Moyo. Through this intervention, the school library also received shelves and books, as well as five computers to be used in the library.

Through these interventions the NWU Mafikeng Campus strives to make a difference by uplifting, developing and supporting society.
