A unique information centre situated within the National Gallery in Bulawayo which is flourishing with a vast variety of reading material on art, making it the only special library of its kind in the region, offering art lovers a rare but worthwhile opportunity to explore, read, prosper and soar high into greater and unimaginable heights in their chosen profession or pass time.

Frequent the library , you will be surprised by the artist lying within you struggling and wriggling to be freed from within the confines of your body, for that fresh breath, air and exposure, wanting to be noticed, feeling all suppressed, shouting out loud, waiting anxiously for that first droplet of information to filter through.
