Getting books into the hands of children is vital if kids are to learn to read. But there are many significant challenges facing those who wish to build a nation of story-readers and story-tellers In South Africa. Social Publishers are publishers who create reading materials for neglected audiences. Rather than operate on a profit basis, these publishers are driven by a mission. They see their books as a social goods, to be directed where they are most needed. This presentation is about mliteracy and how we are getting public librarians up to speed with mobile devices while and broadening uptake and ownership of Social publishing needs to be promoted especially from those who access and use children’s books frequently, like librarians, teachers, social workers etc.

I make my living as a consultant. I work with enablers (educators, para-professionals, librarians and academics) to locate routes, bridges or pathways that might narrow the gaps between digital access, digital capability and digital equity.
