“Since the extension of the operating hours from June 2017 to date, 11,908 more users have benefited. Libraries are a fountain of knowledge, and with the smart initiatives of the City, users have access to Wi-Fi, connecting them to internet learning resource and potential economic opportunities,” said Mayor Herman Mashaba.

Operating hours have been extended at 11 libraries in:

  • Diepsloot: Region A;
  • Ivory Park North: Region A;
  • Randburg: Region B;
  • Florida: Region C;
  • Protea North: Region D;

  • Orange Farm: Region G; and
  • Johannesburg City Library: Region F.

“Our libraries will now operate for additional 4 hours from 13h00 – 17h00 on Saturdays. This is to allowing working residents, who often have no time to visit our libraries, access to these facilities,” Mashaba said.
