George libraries have been impacted by technical issues affecting all non-metro libraries throughout the entire Western Cape. The Sita Library and Information Management System (SLIMS) has been unavailable since 15 November. The impact on service delivery to library users is highly regrettable. All of the George public libraries remain open and will going forward implement manual procedures for the issue and return of books. Internet, WI-FI facilities and the inhouse use of the libraries remain available to all patrons.
Audio and eBooks are available from your local library for free! Libby is the newer library reading app by Overdrive. Patrons are required to download the APP from their play store or via the website link. The patron searches for their local library and is able to browse the collection of Audio and eBooks and make a selection.
