A salvage operation began to retrieve valuable materials from the Jagger Reading Room, which was severely damaged in the runaway Table Mountain fire. Staff, students, and volunteers from outside the university came together in a beautiful expression of community and camaraderie to save what was left of the Special Collections housed there. The university would like to express its sincerest gratitude to all the volunteers for their overwhelming support. Lerato Maduna and Je’nine May were there to catch it all on camera.
