Red Location Library
This library forms part of the Red Location Precinct which currently houses a Museum, an Art Gallery, and the Library. The aim of the Library is to document apartheid history, mainly in digital format, so as to serve as an information resource for researchers worldwide. The library building is complete, but is not currently occupied due to ongoing discussion on a political level with the local residents to allow this to happen. The Museum and the Art Gallery are likewise closed to the public and the staff are working off-site.
As the Library resources are envisaged to be mainly digital, a number of relevant books have been purchased and are available from the library service eMedia Library
