We are happy to announce the commencement of a new book depot in Cape Town. The depot will be the first in South Africa and once the bookshelf is fully stocked with Bestsellers, then we can begin to render services to our readers and partners in the local community.

Are you the next Bestseller?

The first events are expected to take place before the end of 2017, but first we need to fill up the depot with great topics and wonderful people that can answer the many questions our readers have for them. Do you want to contribute then do not hesitate to contact our Book Depot Manager in Cape Town, Madi van Schalkwyk.

Follow developments or get in touch to join the effort through the Human Library Cape Town Facebook Page.
