Library

Our library, the VALCO Library and Learning Centre, provides a wide range of information resources, modern-day tools, programs and services to support teaching and learning, and fosters a reading and information culture that promotes independent motivated readers and lifelong learners.

Our inviting and stimulating learning space opens from 7:00am to 4:30pm on weekdays, and when closed, patrons can still gain access to our diverse collections of electronic resources that include eBooks, digital magazines, audiobooks and web resources, as well as access to book reviews and bibliographic records of physical titles including print books, CD-ROMs, DVDs, magazines, and other media – all via Oliver, our online portal.

The library’s growing collections of physical resources are systematically organised by subject for easy access. Special collections such as the African Collection, and Careers & Universities section are meant to promote African literature, and to provide pertinent information on universities and careers options around the world, respectively.

Our rich collaborative culture always keeps us abreast of the rapidly changing information needs of teachers and students, and this makes the library pragmatically sensitive to the needs of our 21st century clientele.
