Libraries in Mogale City

Pop into a library in Mogale City. You'll find loads of activities and help on hand.



LIBRARIES are no longer those silent, somewhat musty old buildings where people glare if you so much as sneeze.

Nowadays, they are bright and friendly with loads of activities as well as literacy campaigns, study areas, computers with internet access, e- resources and help on hand.

All this, plus, of course, a great choice of books and e-books.
