Modern library facility opened in Herbertsdale

29 September 2017

On 26 September 2017, the Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport (DCAS) Minister Anroux Marais opened a new library in the rural town of Herbertsdale, near Mossel Bay. The opening was held in partnership with the Mossel Bay Municipality.

The community of Herbertsdale welcomed the library with open arms. The library offers the community a wide book collection, free Internet and a Cape Access Centre. The library will unlock new opportunities for the community as people can use the facility to apply for jobs and access the quality services of the Western Cape Government.

Minister Marais said that the new library is a symbol of renewal, as well as a place of safety and literacy, where the community can develop their talent and broaden their knowledge. She urged community members to take ownership of this new facility.

Should you wish to visit the Herbertsdale library it is situated at 45 Herbert Street, Herbertsdale.

DCAS provides libraries as we want to encourage children to read. Let us create well-informed, literate communities, BETTER TOGETHER.
