George Library welcomes the Shakespeare books collection donation

On Friday, 04th March 2022, George Library received a valuable collection of William Shakespeare’s books from David Viviers, who plays the role of Liam Vorster in the South African soapie, Binnelanders.

The late Bishop Derek Damant gave the Shakespeare books to David, during his studies and whilst receiving the Brett Goldin Bursary. David is now donating this collection to George Library. David grew up in George on his grandmother’s farm.

The books are on display at George Library, and will be used continuously during the month of April when libraries in George celebrate World book and Copyright Day which this year, falls on Saturday, 23 April 2022. This is a symbolic date for world literature as is marks the death of William Shakespeare, Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega.

On Saturday, 23 April 2022 George Libraries will be celebrating World Book and Copyright Day.
