Franschhoek Reading

FLF schools library project

One of the most important motivators for establishing the Franschhoek Literary Festival in 2007 was to encourage a culture of reading in the Franschhoek valley and raising funds for local school libraries. The FLF Schools Library Project has invested extensively in four primary school libraries over the past 15 years.

Approximately R1.5m has been spent on staffing, training, supervising and facilitating the operation of Wemmershoek, Wes-eind, Groendal and Dalubuhle Primary School libraries, including the donation of over 6000 new books.

FLF Book Week for Young Readers

FLF Book Week for Young Readers

Since 2011, the FLF Book Week for Young Readers precedes the Literary Festival and brings children’s authors, storytellers, and workshop facilitators to visit eight schools in the valley, engaging with nearly 5 000 youngsters. In 2022 we created a podcast series, Spreading the Word, with the aim of leaving behind a permanent legacy that can be shared with other communities.
