Digital Libraries

In South Africa,In South Africa, we recognise the fact that literacy levels are not what they should be. This is primarily due to the lack of access to quality library resources. Qualibooks was established with the vision of serving the broad educational community with the provision of quality library book resources. To make value adding changes, we need to work together to build a promising future for our country. That’s why Qualibooks offers effective tools, which create valuable opportunities for Corporate Social Investment (CSI).

Investor's benefits

The unique approach of Kibooks stems from a more targeted, needs-specific initiative. Utilising the power of the digital age, our innovative product is targeted to empower the children of South Africa, even in outlying rural areas.
