    Central Library's outreach the Red Cross Children's Hospital
    In 2012 Central Library started an outreach programme where they go to the Red Cross Children's Hospital. Several of the staff of Central library including Sisanda Mtyi, Tracy ..., Natalie Thando and Louise ... took part in this outreach day. This pilot project would indicate if the need is there for the library to visit children in hospital and introduce them to books. On their visit Xhosa, English and Afrikaans stories were told and read to the children who really enjoyed every moment. Goodie bags that included bookmarks, some sweets, pencils and some other nice goodies, were also given to the children. The library will try to repeat this one hour outing once a year and if it is successful they will try to make it more regularly.

    LIBRARY OUTREACH
    Old age homes
    Some libraries in the City of Cape Town have an outreach programme to go to old age homes. This ensures that the library reach the people who cannot come to the library but love to read. This outreach programme was started by the libraries and is not in the general "job description" of libraries, but it is done because the people there deserve the same rights as anyone of the rest of the public. The frequency and details of how each library handles these programmes are different from the next library. For example, and to explain how the outreach programmes work, we will be looking closely at Goodwood Library and their outreach to Protea Old Age Home in Goodwood.

    Library Lion –
    When a lion visits the library, no one knows what to do: there are no rules about lions in the library. But soon he's indispensable - "What a helpful lion," people say. "How did we ever get along without him?" But one day the head librarian falls and breaks her arm, and the only way the lion can get help is to roar. And that is breaking the rules. The next day the lion doesn't come to the library, nor the next day, nor the day after that...until Mr McBee finds him and tells him that sometimes there is a very good reason to break the rules.

    Wolves – Emily
    Rabbit borrows a book about wolves from the library. Straight forward enough. But it's not long before a sinister figure with sharp claws and a bushy tail starts to creep right off the pages. You won't believe your eyes especially if you're a rabbit. Brilliantly witty, with amazing artwork, two surprise endings, plus fun novelty elements

    Is daar plek
    Doodgelukkig seil die heks en haar kat op haar besem deur die lug. Maar toe kry die wind skielik haar punthoed beet en sy moet grond toe om daarna te soek. Daar kom 'n hond ewe met die hoed in sy bek aangedraf, en vra mooi of daar vir hom ook plek is op die besem. En hy is net die eerste van die passasiers wat sy oplaai ...Maar is daar plek op die besem vir 'n hond, 'n voel en 'n padda sowel as vir die heks en haar kat? En wat gemaak toe hulle 'n afgryslike draak teekom wat begin vlamme blaas en brul: Ek is 'n draak en ek's hupser as hups, en die lekkerste poeding is heks saam met tjips!

    these programmes.
    Children of all ages can make use of the library. The different categories for the junior library users are the following:
    Board books: Board books are a type of children's book printed on thick paperboard. Each page panel is a minimum of two plies of paper-bond thickness. Board books are very durable and consequently intended for small children who often tend to be destructive and unpredictable.
    ...
    Pamphlet collection: Some libraries have a collection of newspaper or magazine articles that are filed in the pamphlet collection. These articles can then be used for projects if the books in the library are not available or if the books contain outdated information. Some libraries also collect articles on topics that they know are hard to find in the books.
