Mohlakeng’s underground library


We are in South Africa, Mohlakeng, where the township library was burnt down. Some weeks after this, Neo Mathetsa, a professional actor from Market Theatre, turns his one-room home into a library.

It started with an appeal for books but now it is something that is growing in size. The library is open to everyone, from young children to elderly people, 24 hours a day.
