Heritage Month is celebrated annually in September. It is celebrated to mark our nation’s diverse culture and heritage.
Government calls on all South Africans to use Heritage Month to foster greater social cohesion, nation building and a shared national identity.
The celebration of Heritage Month has created a conducive environment for all people to embrace and celebrate what was inherited or bequeathed to us by our forebears.
We call on all South Africans to support the culture of reading and incorporate it into their daily lifestyles.
It is important to encourage your children to visit a library and start reading at an early age so that they grow up with the passion for reading as this develop a broader vocabulary and increased general knowledge.
