Bello come edificio, tutto bianco ed in stile neo classico.
La libreria nazionale è un importante luogo di cultura.

Após visitarmos jardim botânico no centro da cidade, aproveitamos para conhecer a biblioteca, um prédio majestoso, e com espaços agradáveis. Muito silêncio para não atrapalharmos a concentração das pessoas. Foi uma boa visita.

美麗的建築。如果你有工作或學習需要完成而不想受咖啡店環境的干擾,那麼這裡是個好地方。內部整潔,光線充足,方便公眾使用。廁所不是很乾淨。不能帶食物或水進去。偶爾舉辦各種書籍活動和研討會。必須在網上檢查時間表。

Stubbled into this venue by accident as intended to tour the Company Gardens but it poured with rain so here we are. Brilliant building in the style of many a Guildhall in the UK. Nice to see it in such good condition considering the falling interest in the contents. An academics must do.

This is a great building which has the traditional feel of libraries from years gone by. Quick tip: If you want to catch up on emails or the internet, there is free wifi available here.

Another stunning old building, this time housing a vast repository of basically everything published in SA! As previous reviewers have mentioned, if you have anything specific you would like to view or do research on, then you need to phone in advance and make a request. As most of their material is archived, the retrieval system is of necessity, time consuming, so advanced warning does pay off!

When I visited the Slave Lodge, I learned that Afrikkans was first written in the Arabic script. As a native speaker of the Arabic language, I was curious to see the language in this script and try to read it and see how close is the language to Arabic and English. The staff of the library were really nice and were helpful. None of these books were in the physical building but they helped me order some that came the next day for me to inspect and enjoy reading. It's a nice library and it has some of the most treasured books. I highly recommend that you allow at least 15 minutes to check it out.

While holidaying in Cape Town for 15 nights from 29/11/17 to 14/12/17 I would often walk past the Library during my daily sightseeing & decided to call in on Monday 11/12/17.
Architecturally old white beautiful building and looks very grand on approach, no admission fee on arrival, just tight security with bags checked. Inside it's also amazing with its old interior with plenty of history to share i'm sure !
Stayed just under one hour & looked at some interesting books.
Internet available if you're a member of the Library.
The Library is easily located literally next door to The Company's Garden.

If libraries are your 'thing' – or if you grew up looking for books in a classic card catalogue (picture attached) – then I'd highly recommend swinging by the National Library of South Africa's Cape Town campus, right next to The Company's Gardens in the city centre. Considering they house some of the oldest documents in southern Africa – including some early editions of Shakespeare – it truly is like stepping back in time.

All good things aside, I do have to say that I found some of their staff quite rude, though, especially in the (beautiful) reading room, where they are responsible for collecting and bringing books to visitors. I know the job must be a hassle, walking up and down, collecting books the whole day, but I didn't really want to be served attitude during my visit.

Tip: If you'd like to read something specific, especially something in a collection, or something quite old, best to phone them beforehand and make an appointment to look at it. It might take a day or two to retrieve certain materials, or you might only be able to view them during a scheduled appointment. Apart from the card catalogue, there's also a handy online search function, which should kick off your initial search quite well.
