South Africa's First Green Star Museum Is A Haven For Book Lovers

By

A massive library in South Africa has become the country’s highest-rated Green Star building in the public and education sector. It’s located in Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape and known as the National English Literary Museum (NELM). The building has recently accomplished its goals of limiting energy, recycling water, and creating local job opportunities in the area.

Hailed as a literary treasure, the NELM was completed last June. It totaled 145 million South American Rand, or just a shade above $11,159,000 USD. The entire property stretches out to nearly 116,380 square feet, but it includes a treasure trove of amenities such as exhibits, theaters, and an outdoor stage.
