Langeberg Municipality in collaboration with the Cape Winelands Education District office has launched a Love to read ,  Lief vir Lees , Thandu’ Funda!!!!  campaign on World Read Aloud Day (03 February 2021).

Reading opens a whole new world of imagination, and through it, educational opportunities becomes unlimited. Empowering our children with knowledge builds self-confidence, that will allow them to follow their dreams and become fruitful citizens.

Join the international celebration by reading to the children in your life. Below is a story to enjoy reading aloud to your children, or visit our Facebook Page to listen to a video recording of the reading.

Every week a recording will be selected to share on the Langeberg Municipal Facebook Page, to continuously inspire a love to read amongst our youth.



We call on community members to donate any unused, old or redundant books.

Book donations can be left at any of the Langeberg Municipal receptionists from 8 February 2021 to 31 March 2021.

These books will be repaired and distributed to schools to encourage reading amongst our children. Learning to read at a young age will empower our youth to use reading to learn.
