Digital Libraries

Thousands of eLibrary resourses at your fingertips across all eleven South African languages.

Investor's benefits

Qualibooks is known to be of great benefit to corporates in South Africa that seek to invest some or all of their Corporate Social Investment (CSI) funds in the education sector.

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.

We add value to companies that invest funds

In South Africa, we recognise the fact that literacy levels are not what they should be.
This is primarily due to a lack of access to quality library resources.

  • Of the approximately 27,000 public schools in South Africa, almost 86% are under resourced, having little or no library resourcesand/or no librarians.

Generating new ideas. Solving big problems!

We endeavor to include as much locally produced content as possible, while still gleaning from some of the top publishing houses in the United Kingdom and abroad, providing holistic insight to our young readers.

Locally developed publications make use of illustrations correctly representing the demographics of the country, language use and reference to people. Topics include historical figures and human rights advocates such as Nelson Mandela, topics about South Africa, voting, stories with social justice / morals (in a South African context) and so forth.
