Find out more about the City’s library and information services

The core business of library and information services includes:

  •    Collection development and management (including bibliographic management)
  •    Provision of safe and free library facilities for reading and learning
  •    Provision of free and guided access to knowledge and information (including online access to library and other information resources)
  •    Development, promotion and maintenance of a reading culture through the delivering of programmes
  •    Ongoing research, planning, monitoring and evaluation to improve service delivery

The library and information services also offer a satellite library service to those communities with no access to a library service. The aim of the service is to increase and promote access to library services by providing suitable loan collections of books at designated areas. While the emphasis is on the elderly and the youth, this is not exclusive and other communities, for example, prisons are also serviced by satellite services.
