Johannesburg libraries are education ecosystems that offer a range of services to the public. They are hubs of education, giving residents access to books, magazines and audio-visual materials.

Besides lending out material, the City’s libraries offer a wide-range of other services including literacy classes, storytelling sessions for youngsters, classroom support, gatherings for older residents and literary competitions.

They are also the venues for lectures, exhibitions, and talks. Libraries can be found across the City’s seven regions, and mobile satellite centres also travel to far-flung areas.

The main library – the Johannesburg Public Library – is based in the city centre, in Market Street. It has over 1.5-million books in its collection and more than 250 000 members. 
 

Also on the premises are a number of specialist libraries:

  • Central Reference Library
  • Children’s Library
  • Michaelis Art Library
  • Multimedia Library
  • Music Library
  • Harold Strange Library of African Studies
  • Newspaper Reading Room

Cybase centre Young Adults' Reference Library The Central Lending Library is open from Monday to Friday between 10am and 5pm, and on Saturdays from 9am to 1pm


The Reference Library's hours are from 9am to 5pm on weekdays, and from 9am to 1pm on Saturdays. Apart from the main library in the centre of the city, there are many other libraries in the suburbs. There is also an Urban Resource Centre (previously the  Local Government Library) located on the 12th floor of the Metro Centre in Braamfontein.
