By Mahlatse Baloyi

The residents of Sekhukhune will no longer travel long distances to access library services courtesy of the newly-built library in the vicinity of Sephaku Village. The Deputy Minister of Arts and Culture Rejoice Mabudafhasi together with the MEC of Limpopo Sports, Arts and Culture Nandi Ndalane officially opened Vlakfontein library on 09 March 2015.


The learners of Sekhukhune community spoke in glowing terms of the library which is envisaged to assist schools and colleges in that area. Nthabiseng Mahlangu and Kagiso Matebana from Sekoli Primary School shared the same sentiment. They both said the library will be worthwhile as it would provide more study material, reference books and internet access.

The Deputy Minister Mabudafhasi encouraged learners to read more than what is prescribed by teachers to enhance knowledge. She further said “the library is furnished with numerous books written in all eleven official languages to create a reading habit in the community”. She also publicly declared that an amount of R3 billion has been set aside to build more libraries especially in the rural areas.
