Dibuka is revamping!

Dibuka is revamping!

 

Due to a delay in the renovation work, Dibuka will only re-open on the 18th of August 2018.
We apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

 

In the framework of its 15th anniversary, Dibuka is closed for renovation from the 16th of July 2018 to the 2nd of August 2018 included.

Based at the Alliance Française of Johannesburg, Dibuka is a francophone multi-media library for all ages.
It offers to the general public almost 20 000 documents including books, comics, CD's and videos (French cinema and documentaries, French Press, manuals to learn French, French language teaching aid and more)...

To celebrate this brand new space, we invite you to join us during the whole month of September for the Dibuka Festival! You will discover our new kid corner, a cinema space, as well as a choice of activities around bookmaking, storytelling, animation, bande dessinée and much more!

Stay tuned, the programme will be out soon.
