Library and Information Services Department<p>​Our department consists of 104 service points, including 101 libraries, two satellite libraries and a mobile library service. These service points not only loan out books, but also provide access to electronic resources, newspapers, magazines and journals, and programmes in information-retrieval skills, lifelong learning, and storytelling. Libraries also provide a safe space for the communities we serve to study, meet, socialise, learn and read. </p><span> <ul class="lrg-icon-content"><li class="lrg-icon lrg-link"><div class="list-links"> <a title="title" href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/Family%20and%20home/see-all-city-facilities/our-service-facilities/libraries/">Find a public library</a><a href="http://coct.slims.gov.za/desktop/desktopct/core/index.phtml?language=&euser=&session=&service=&robot=&deskservice=desktop&desktop=desktopct&workstation=&extra" target="_blank">Renew your library materials online (OPAC)<i class="icon link-external"></i></a></div></li></ul></span><blockquote cite="http://wwww.cite.co.za"><p> <em>"We empower people and communities by providing spaces, connections and resources that enrich lives, inspire discovery, foster creativity and expand possibilities.
