Weltevreden Park Library


The library was established in the early 80’s and this library building was opened officially in 1985. It was established to meet the needs of a growing community, with young families moving into the area. There was no library facility anywhere in Weltevreden Park at that stage.

Community profile

It is a public library serving a diverse community ranging from elderly people to young families with small children. The members cover the full spectrum of racial groupings and are generally middle to high income. There is a greater demand for leisure reading material than study and reference works, although we do provide a service to children and students needing information and help with homework. A number of students make use of the library for study purposes. The WiFi in the library is also attracting more people to come and do their work in the library, such as students, people who are working but on study leave etc.

The Library is busy, and with the influx of people moving into new developments/complexes, it seems to grow faster as people are becoming more aware of the library. The library is doing well with holiday programmes, and story hours and has been involved with presenting Digital Storytimes and holiday programs during covi19 lockdown. The library is situated just behind the Palm Court Shopping Center, down the road from the BP petrol station on JG Strydom Dr.
