About Us

Thursday 8 September 2022

In collaboration with the UKZN Pmb library colleagues

1 September is traditionally known as Spring Day. The day that replaces our winter blues and fills us with hope and expectation of warmer days and a brighter tomorrow. Sounds very promising and inspirational, doesn’t it?

 The UKZN Pmb libraries embarked on a Spring Day initiative which celebrated the day and highlighted the library resources.

 There were 2 competitions; 1 on the blogs and 1 on using the library resources. There were 5 prizes altogether. There were so many correct entries that selecting 5 winners was a bit of a challenge.

 A display was created and students were encouraged to take selfies with the hashtag in this blog’s title.

Dr Siyanda Kheswa, from the Information Studies Department, presented a talk on the importance of libraries and library resources. Attendees at the talk got freebies which they were excited about. The prizes for the competitions were presented to the students by Siyanda after his talk.

The library staff also had fun celebrating Spring Day by having competitions and taking lots of selfies. Guess who was the most excited about Spring Day? It’s kind of hard to tell, right?

Our library staff competition winners. Aren’t you glad you joined in the fun!

The staff also had a tea which was really yummy. Doesn’t the colour scheme look festive? Don’t you wish you were here?

Spring is sometimes viewed as a new beginning or a cleansing or refreshing. Let’s hold on to happy thoughts and be thankful for blessings and positive experiences. Most of all, let’s have fun on Spring day, and every day, and make it memorable. Hope your Spring Day was as much fun as ours. The best is yet to come!
