Western Cape Provincial Libraries

This service is provided by municipalities in cooperation with the Western Cape Provincial Library Service. Libraries are resource centres for adults and children. The public can access or borrow books, audio books, music CDs, videos, CD-ROMs, newspapers and periodicals at their local library.

Libraries are a community service that encourage reading, promote literacy, present video shows, run events, and provide holiday programmes for learners and story hours for toddlers. Small Business Corners at some libraries provide entrepreneurs with business advice literature.

A library card is needed to borrow, return or renew library materials. Library members can also request loans from other libraries. Libraries also offer photocopy services to the public and some offer free internet access.

Temporary membership is available to borrowers using libraries outside their municipal area.

A library membership card is issued on registration with your local library. You need to take your ID book and fill out a form to apply for a library card. You should receive your new membership card by post in about two weeks.
