Hi guys,
We had a meeting in January and I had this topic added as a project. We shall have our next meeting on Saturday, but I heard through the grapevine that the project is on track and any books will be gladly accepted to add to the library. I will get more detail during the next meeting, but in the meantime, PLEASE bring the books along. You can contact me via PM for my cell number and then you can give me a shout when you get to Upington and I will gladly collect the books from you and pass it on to the person handling the library. More detail to follow after the next meeting. Thanx
:D

you could try a pm to Bannavdm josh :D

Received this answer from Banna
Quote:
I have delivered the books I've received to KTP (attention Henriette - the lady that handles the library). When I delivered some more books last week (to reception) they knew about the library, so I believe that it is up and running.


He is not longer involved in the HR Kalahari so i will discuss this further with KTP
But the books can be deliverd at TR :thumbs_up:

I will post again when i have more info but looks like the project is up and running :dance:
Thank you Banna for all you have done for KTP and the forum :thumbs_up:

Discussed this with Rudi Beukes, Honorary Ranger, working within KTP.
Quote:
Hi Bert

I saw the books box of books when they came in and we made list of it and Henriette said she would distribute them on her next round through the park. More books would be very welcome. I, myself, living in the KTP most of the time on my own, knows valuable reading material is! This is a great idea.

Blessings
Rudi Beukes


We agreed upon the following
Either send or deliver the books at Twee Rivieren, for the attention of Henriette/Library

Afrikaans and English
And magazines are welcome as well

Forumites, thank you for introducing such a very welcomed service :clap:

:thumbs_up:

Many thanks for following this up, Bert. :thumbs_up:
I unfortunately had to get rid of many of the books we had (home renovations, limited packing space) but still have about 20 I can send….and lucky know of ‘mites who are heading to KTP in October…will ask them to take it along. :D
It will really help in future if ‘mite who are heading to the Kgalagadi, and who are prepared to take books along, can post on this thread, like AjayB did 8)

Received a question from PWN about which magazines are popular.
And the question has been asked before about old ID books for staff.

Will get in touch with KTP and come back with a answer.

@Jumbo. Thank you for starting this thread 8)

On the 17th dec. we'll be heading for KTP. We are staying in Pretoria the 15th and 16th and can take something with us. We are flying so the weight is limited.

Hallo everyone - just thought I would add what I wrote earlier this year after our January trip - in italics below. It certainly doesn't reflect everyone's views, but may be helpful. I remember field books were requested by everyone I spoke to.

just returned from staying at a couple of the wilderness camps and I took the opportunity of speaking to the guides at Urikaruus, KTC and Grootkolk about their preferences; Afrikaans material seems to be preferred to English (but not excluded please), they all mentioned that they would love magazines; Huisgenoot, Weg were mentioned specifically and everyone said thrillers would go down well and perhaps a couple of field books; birds and mammals - hope helpful
