Library Story Times in Cape Town

A while back I did a post on free things to do in Cape Town with kids and included visiting a library during story time as one of the free options. Anyway I thought it might be useful as a separate post should anyone just want this info. Here is the list of Library Story Times in Cape Town.

Bloubergstrand – Monday and Wednesday 3pm (ages 8 – 9)
Brackenfell – Wednesday 10.30 – 11.30 (ages 3+) excludes school holidays
Claremont – Wednesday 10am – 10.30am (ages 1 – 3)
Durbanville – First Thursday 10.30am – 11am

Other libraries which host story times are Belville, Camps Bay, Milnerton, Mowbray, Muizenberg, Pinelands, Somerset West and Vredehoek. Check directly with the library for story times, see this list of your local libraries for contact details. Please feel free to leave a comment should you know of another Library that offers story time or if these details change!

Some book stores also offer this service such as The Book Lounge in Roeland Street, City Centre or Readers Warehouse in Tokai. Keep an eye out in the local press for details.

Kathryn Rossiter

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!

  1. I can highly recommend story time at Bellville Library. Every Wednesday at 10am, followed by a fun activity or two.
