Sandringham Library

The Sandringham Library is staffed by a Librarian, Library Assistant and a general assistant. It is next to the recreation centre sports ground, park and shopping centre. We have services that we render at our library besides just lending books to our patrons, we do have free Wi-Fi, storytelling sessions, books clubs and PWD programmes. A lot of our patrons are the elderly people and from the Jewish community to be precise. Sandringham library was an old farm house build in 1946. It was then changed to be the library in 1952. It is a small library with big a collection and a lot of members, it is mostly used by elders, it is situated in a Jewish area hence our patrons most of them are Jewish people. We have a relationship with few schools that are not far from the library as we let them participate in programs such as battle of the books, story skirmish and science scuffle.
