Isivivana library


The Isivivana Centre Library is part of this social justice hub in the heart of the Khayelitsha Business District. It provides quality information services to the Khayelitsha and wider Cape Flats communities. The library has an exciting catalogue of literature on political histories and social activism in South Africa as well as fiction by established and emerging Black writers. The facility provides a quiet space integral to the needs of young learners from Khayelitsha to do homework and complete their assignments. They can also do their research on the computers in the library that has a stable wifi connection. This is a place for jobseekers to work on their CV's, apply for jobs or explore other education opportunities.
