Happy New Year From the Director!
2013 has been a very fun and interesting year, from the rise of technology to the growing patrons we serve.
We’ve introduced and maintained numerous databases via our website. Tuition Funding Source is a database
to assist patrons seeking college assisting. Media On Demand is a database where patrons can select and
download e-books to their computers, kindles, and alike. Tutor.Com is a database where live tutoring sessions
can be access for any grade Kindergarten to College. It also allows you to job search, have your resumes and
cover letters critique. Dear Reader.Com allows you to receive and read books via your e-mail. Homebound
Services is an added service via our Bookmobile, it provides delivery of library materials free-of-charge to
Markham & Posen residents who are physically unable to visit the library due to health issues. Self Check-Out
is here and ready to serve you as with on-line Patron Accounting. You asked for it and now you have it, we’re
now accepting credit/debit cards as a form of payment. We strive each day to provide you with the best
services possible. As this year progresses, we hope to service you more thru technology, databases, programs
and our efficient business center.

ROLIHLAHLA NELSON MANDELA (1918 – 2013)
Hero of the apartheid struggle, he spent 26 years in jail and then became South Africa's first
democratically elected president
Rolihlahla – This is Mr Mandela’s birth name: it is an isiXhosa name which means “pulling the branch of a
tree”, but colloquially it means “troublemaker”. His father gave him this name.
Nelson – This name was given to him on his first day at school by his teacher, Miss Mdingane. Giving African
children English names was a custom among Africans in those days and was influenced by British colonials
who could not easily, and often would not, pronounce African names.
Madiba – This is the name of the clan of which Mr Mandela is a member..
Tata – This isiXhosa word means “father” and is a term of endearment that many South Africans use for Mr
Mandela.
Khulu – Mr Mandela is often called “Khulu”, which means great, paramount, grand. The speaker means “Great
One” when referring to Mr Mandela in this way. It is also a shortened form of the isiXhosa word
“uBawomkhulu” for “grandfather”.
Dalibhunga – This is the name Mr Mandela was given at the age of 16 once he had undergone initiation, the
traditional Xhosa rite of passage into manhood. It means “creator or founder of the council” or “convenor of
the dialogue”. The correct use of this name when greeting Mr Mandela is “Aaah! Dalibhunga”.
