SALB training - Babirwa MiniLibrary

Lethabo Dikgale, the Limpopo Coordinator conducted training at Babirwa MiniLibrary on 21 April 2022 in celebration of World Book and Copyright day. The users were trained on the Victor reader, Envoy connect book readers and Document readers.“Yesterday I held a user’s training at Babirwa Community Library. The library is at a remote rural area near the Boarder of Botswana. I have to say that this was the most humbling of trainings. To find the users it was a matter of navigating through the community as the members are sheltered without any mobility training. Yesterday was the first time they heard of and felt braille,” said Dikgale. The training session was meant to expose members to assistive devices and to encourage reading.
