Welcome to Library and Information Services (LIS)
Art Exhibition at Central Library
The Cape Artist Project, an exhibition of OILS presented by Wilma du Toit and artists from her Painting With Wilma classes is currently on display at Central Library. The exhibition opened on Wednesday the 8th of October and will run for a month up until Saturday the 8th of November.
Remote access to Encyclopaedia Britannica
The Library and Information Services Department have spent approximately R2 million on the renewal of the Encyclopaedia Britannica online licence, which now also includes access to the service on all internet-enabled mobile and smart devices. This will mean that all City library users will have 24-hour remote access to the service.
View, renew and access library material
The Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC) is a service provided by the City of Cape Town which allows the public access to the catalogue in order to search for library material. It also allows library patrons access to view outstanding and reserved items as well as renew library material.
