Accommodation near National Library of South Africa

The National Library of South Africa is based in Cape Town City Centre.

It is the leading national library and information centre in Africa and the world. The mission of the National Library is to be the primary resource and custodian of South African documentary heritage and to promote creative, effective and efficient universal access to information.

Until 1999 South Africa had two national libraries, the South African Library which was founded in 1818 in Cape Town, and the State Library founded in 1887 in Pretoria. These were eventually amalgamated during the 1990s.

The National Library is mandated by the National Library of South Africa Act to collect and preserve published documents and make them accessible. It tries to ensure that knowledge is not lost to posterity and that information is available for research.

The National Library's collections contain a wealth of information, and include rare manuscripts, books published in South Africa, periodicals, government publications, official foreign publications, maps, technical reports, Africana and newspapers. Many of these are available on CD or microfilm, in digital format or accessible online.

The National Library also houses a community outreach unit called 'The Centre for The Book'. Its mission is to promote a culture of reading, writing and publishing in local languages and easy access to books for all. The unit coordinates book related activities nationally, such as book discussions, poetry readings, book launches, writing workshops and conferences.

Gardens Reviews

Gardens
Best area in Cape Town in terms of convenience.
- David Lynn

Gardens
Gardens is an awesome area with so much life and interesting things to do and see. However, traffic can be a nightmare with the narrow roads and erratic drivers.
- Alice Kwan

Gardens
For a pleasant, comfortable and convenient stay in Cape Town you could not do better. We stepped out the door and across the street to the cool, quiet gardens which we could walk through to most of the central attractions in 10 or 15 minutes.
- Janet Leeming

Gardens
One of the best areas in the Central CBD with a number of great, cozy restaurants, coffee shops and the like. Great to explore on foot, lazing in the Company Gardens, going for high tea at the Mount Nelson Hotel, the options are endless and best of all, it's central to almost everything.

Definitely a "must explore" when in Cape Town.
