The Greenwell Matongo Community Library is situated at Katutura in Windhoek. The name derives from a freedom fighter – Greenwell Matongo who fought for the liberation of Namibia.
The City of Windhoek in partnership with the Ministry of Education and City of Vantaa, Finland came up with an initiative, to help the community through educational services. Therefore, a Community Library was established in March 2005, with the aim of providing library and information services for the community.
Besides the traditional services that are being provided by a library (borrowing and lending books), Greenwell Matongo Library gives also services such as a free internet access, photocopying and faxing of documents, scanning and laminating. Free computer training and workshops on e.g. craft for the community at large are also offered.
