Libraries in Hermanus
Hermanus is a place of wonder. The stretch of the ocean, coupled with the majestic mountains, abundance of birdlife and family-friendly activities, makes it the ideal place to forget your stresses and have good, clean fun. Located a short drive away from Cape Town, it’s easy to esape to the seaside without a care in the world and Hermanus thrives in showing visitors a great time. With a host of activities available, it’s easy to find something exciting to see, do or experience. On the other end of the scale, it’s also the ideal place to sit back and do nothing. And what better way to achieve that zen-like state than by visiting one of the local libraries and choosing a book to read while you’re on holiday.
Local and international travellers alike flock to Hermanus for its natural beauty and offerings. From outdoor activities to locally crafted goods, you can embrace the small-town lifestyle without having to compromise your own creature comforts. Taking this time out, whether with your family, friends or your partner, means shutting out your work stresses and focussing on yourself. There really is nothing quite better than having some quiet time with your choice of books from the local library. If you live in Hermanus then it’s a rich source of information and literature all year long and if you’re visiting then don’t hesitate to enquire about signing up to the library for the length of your stay.
While you can access a host of books on a tablet, computer or even your mobile phone do you really want to be glued to your electronic devices for extensive periods of time? Let alone run up your mobile data bill and let’s be honest the beach is no place for a mobile device unless it’s water and sandproof. If you’re travelling with small kids, having them pick out a book from local library to read with them can also be an exciting activity, especially just before bed time. With the abundance of books available kids of all ages can benefit. There’s no denying that little ones need to be entertained, especially while on holiday and a trip to the library is not only exciting and educational but also cost-effective.
Even if you bring your own book along, you don’t have to worry about finishing it prematurely as you can just head down to the library to pick up another one. You can even push your boundaries by choosing something that’s more local. Picture yourself, lying on a Blue Flag beach, the sun is shining, you have an umbrella overhead and the sound of the crashing waves is soothing you while you immerse yourself in a riveting piece of literature about the paradise you find yourself in. Does that not sound like the perfect escape?
