Strubensvalley Library

Strubensvalley Library keeps pace with modern technology and the changing role of libraries by offering computer classes, to enable adults to stay engaged in a digital world. Our library has computers with internet for public use. The library is safe a place for kids when schools are closed. We offer homework classes for kids, games and book clubs for all patrons. There are outreach programs that keep those living in remote areas or those who are homebound connected to the larger community.

  1. Hey there, I just wanted to know if the library does printing and if so how much and if that is one of the services that require proof of residence to do, a quick response would be appreciated, enjoy your day.

    1. Dear Smangaliso
      Strubensvalley Library does not offer printing facilities, but they offer photocopying services at R1 per page.

      Kind regards

      Unfortunately we do not have energy resources that support libraries during load shedding. Randburg Library is the only library that received a donation from BarOne for a generator. Some libraries that are located in Malls, might benefit from the mall generator but the city does not provide generators or energy backup system sin library spaces.
