Centre for the Book

This magnificent domed Edwardian made its debut in the early 20th century and was used as a senate house and administrative offices before it was declared a national monument. Today it houses the Centre for the Book, an arm of the National Library of South Africa, which is dedicated to the promotion of reading, writing and published in all local language. It is actively involved within the community, organizing readings, writing workshops, book launched and conferences.

Hours: 8.00am-4.30pm Mon-Fri.

Admission: Free.
