Durbanville library is open again

Durbanville library has reopened.

Durbanville library has reopened after being closed for several weeks due to a countrywide rise in Covid-19 cases.

The library is on the corner of Oxford Street and Koeberg Road. No more than 50 people, including staff, will be allowed in at a time. Patrons will have 30 minutes for browsing and two hours for studying.

Currently no photocopying or printing services are available.

According to Principal Librarian, Rene Schoombe, the library provided a call-and-collect service during the closure.

“We were also busy with a maintenance project, which included renovations such as fixing of the roof, painting and repairing the damaged ceiling.

“During the six week period of the renovations, the library staff came up with innovative ideas such as a pop-up library in the foyer which ensured that patrons received the reading material they craved for.”
