We are the proud recipients of a donation from the Read Japan Book Donation Project – a project initiated by the Japanese Embassy in South Africa.
The Read Japan Book Donation project is an initiative from The Nippon Foundation. Through this program books about contemporary Japan are donated to libraries around the world. The initial donation is called, “100 Books for Understanding Contemporary Japan” – 100 books, selected by a committee of Japanese and foreign scholars, journalists etc., covering five categories, politics & international relations, economy & business, society & culture, literature & arts, and history.
Visitors are welcome to come and browse our small, but growing collection.
