Scheduled closures for City libraries during stocktake

Yeoville Library will be closed from February 25 to March 2.

The Department of Library and Information Services (LIS) conducts stocktaking in libraries on a schedule over a period of three years.

In February this year, the LIS directorate conducted stocktaking in eight of the city’s libraries.

This schedule will resume from October 8 to March 30, 2019, at 32 of the city’s other libraries.

“This is an essential library book stock management tool, which ensures that each library has the best resources on offer for our residents, who rely on our libraries for the provision of studying and research material, amongst other things,” said Clr Nonhlanhla Sifumba, Member of the Mayoral Committee for Community Development.

“To ensure that our library resources are up to date, and of relevant use to our residents, individual libraries will be closed to the public for the duration of the stocktake. This is in compliance with treasury regulations GRAP 17, which ensures that library assets are kept modern and up to date,” she said.

Notices will be placed in the libraries two weeks before each closure, as well as information on alternative libraries to use close-by.

The notices will also be posted on the Library and Information Services Directorate’s Facebook page, as well as on the @CoJCommunityDev Twitter page in order to inform communities of the planned closures.

“We ask for residents’ patience during this time,” said Sifumba.

Region F libraries that will be closed for stocktaking include:

• Hillbrow, October 29 to November 3.

• JCL Children’s Book Collection (JCL), October 15 to 20.

• Brixton, December 3 to 8.

• JCL Young Adults Reference (JCL), February 4 to 9.

• Yeoville, February 25 to March 2.
