Join North-West University Library Services in celebrating International Literacy Day on 8 September 2017. This global annual event aims to highlight the importance of literacy for both young and old. This year’s theme Literacy in a Digital World, emphasises the importance of developing digital literacy skills, so as to enhance the participation of individuals in the digital citizenship. Since 21st-century information is available in multiple formats, it is essential for our society to equip ourselves with the relevant skills that will enable us to navigate the overwhelming amount of information at our disposal.
To celebrate International Literacy Day, we invite you to go on an adventure that will allow you to explore our libraries’ facilities and resources. There are various prizes up for the taking and all you need to do is to join in the fun!
