In 1847 the citizens of the town established a public library, and although lack of funds hindered the growth of the library, it developed over the years into the town’s cultural centre.
By 1878 the southern wing was added and in 1926 the northern wing was added on the site of the old branddam.
A modern library was built in Parsonage Street in 1981, and the Municipality donated the old building to the Graaff-Reinet Museum which houses specialized collections. It was proclaimed a National Monument in 1987.
Some of their services:
