The City of Cape Town is worried about the effect that violence is having on libraries .

Concerns over vandalism and violence that are interfering with library operations have been raised by the City of Cape Town.

On Monday, two deceased bodies were discovered close to the Manenberg Library. The City claims that because of the frequent gunshots in the area, the Khayelitsha Library closes for a few hours every day.

According to the city, staff and clients are traumatized.

“The closure of libraries even if it is for few hours is time lost to residents who want to study, research or socialize because libraries are safe spaces for residents spend time to relax and fine information they need so they must be kept safe, said the MMC for Community Services and Health, Patricia van der Ross.
