19 October 2016

The Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport supported the 17th  Library and Information Association of South Africa (LIASA) Conference that took place from 10 to14 October 2016 at the Durban International Convention Centre.  The theme for this year was: Libraries in Action: Transformation and Development towards 2030.

LIASA is a non-profit organisation representing the interests of library institutions and people working in the library and information services sector. As part of the Library and Information Services  (LIS) Village, the Western Cape Library Service showcased its 367 affiliated public libraries, its services, projects and promotional material to conference delegates.  The LIS Village showcased exhibition stands from all nine provincial library services supported by the National Library of South Africa.

Sally Witbooi, lecturer at the UWC Department of Library and Information Science applauded the DCAS Library Service exhibition  and said: “Best stand of all provincial libraries: Well stocked, information exchange brilliant and neat appearance.“

DCAS is committed to developing and transforming library services through partnerships BETTER TOGETHER.
