Library Hours: Monday to Friday 9h00-16h00

The library in the Betty’s Bay municipal complex opened in 1993 to serve Betty’s Bay, Pringle Bay and Rooi Els.

Recently, albums with newspaper clippings, photos and other information on the very early years in the Hangklip area were donated to the Friends of the Hangklip Library. These documents are precious and invaluable in that they reflect the history of our particular area.


There is no doubt about the considerable importance of public libraries in the provision of information, education and the promotion of reading skills, as well as the establishment of a reading culture. Therefore, we would like to extend a sincere invitation to all, old and young, to support the Friends of the Library with your enthusiasm and membership. In this way we shall be able to give our public library that much-needed extra support. We would really welcome the involvement of more of the younger parents in our communities.

Please enquire at our library about membership of the Friends. You can contact Rosaline with any enquiries on 028 272 9263.

We truly are a lekker circle of friends.

Please bring items of interest to the library, which can be found in the municipal office complex opposite the Caltex Garage in Betty’s Bay.

The Friends would be keen to welcome your help and expertise.
