World Read Aloud Day celebrations continued on Thursday, 3 February with the KwaZulu-Natal Museum's Education Outreach Team along with the Museum's Library Department visiting Maria Memorial Primary School.
The day's celebrations kicked off with the outreach team launching a reading club at the primary school, with an aim to improve learners reading literacy and develop their love for reading at an early age.
In keeping with the ethos of World Read Aloud Day, learners were given the opportunity to perform and share their favourite stories with the audience in attendance. Learners were also given pointers by the Museum's Library Department on how to better take care of books so that they can be shared and reused for many years to come.
