International Literacy Day (08 September 2017)

North-West University Library Potchefstroom celebrated International Literacy Day with a fun activity for the students. This gave the students an opportunity to learn about the library’s facilities and resources. A scavenger hunt was planned and QR codes were incorporated to raise awareness of digital literacy in accordance with this year’s theme of International Literacy Day: Literacy in a digital world. Students who participated in the event were very enthusiastic and mentioned that they learnt more about the library as this was not just as fun activity, but one that had a literacy value.
