The LitDistrict is a new, collaborative effort to transform the area around the city's main library. This part of the city is home to dozens of diverse booksellers, and to a rich literary history.

We're working with the Johannesburg Development Agency to create new Street Libraries around the LitDistrict, to upgrade public spaces, and to help small booksellers improve the businesses with training and improved facilities.

We're just getting started. Join our mailing list to keep updated!
