Have you heard the big news about the SACE Virtual Library? If you’re registered with SACE, you can log in to the e-library and start checking out any ebooks that take your fancy, whether you’re reading for professional development or pleasure. There are thousands of books to choose from.
Claim professional development points
The SACE Virtual Library has been set up to help you access the right resources, to help you be the best teacher you can be, and empower you to continue growing and evolving in the teaching profession.
Importantly, SACE CEO Ella Mokgalane notes, ‘engaging with the reading material from the SACE Virtual Library counts as part of educators’ continuing professional development. Therefore, educators will also be able to record their professional development points by accessing the reading material from the virtual library, which is closely linked to the Continued Professional Teacher Development (CPTD) portal.’
Read for free, anywhere, anytime
The SACE Virtual Library is powered by Snapplify’s award-winning technology and includes a wide range of content – from professional development, leadership and management, to teaching resources and books for leisure reading.
Once books are checked out of the library, teachers can read them on any device, online or offline, using the Snapplify Reader app. And if you need help, Snapplify’s support team can help you any day of the week.
‘The President of South Africa has highlighted how important it is for the country to become a nation of readers and our vision to launch the SACE Virtual Library for our registered educators and stakeholders is in line with this – to strengthen reading and literacy in South Africa,’ said SACE CEO Ella Mokgalane.

Members have been emailed an invitation to join the library (make sure your email address is up to date!), and can also log in to the library using the link found in the SACE CPTD portal. Once books are checked out of the library, teachers can read them on any device, online or offline, using the Snapplify Reader app.
