25 years of offering our listeners audio pleasure
The Listeners’ Library opened its doors to business on 1 May, 1985. It boasted 27 titles and two copies of each on its shelves!

“I always knew it was a volume business but that we had to start somewhere, so what better place than at home with no overheads?” says Kirston Hoets, founder of The Listeners’ Library.

The Listeners’ Library has its flag-ship store in Hyde Square, Sandton, and 3outlets: Pretoria, Cape Town, Johannesburg.

Rental Library
It has over 1 000 titles on its CD and Playaway catalogue, with multiple copies of each, and a membership list of over 15 000. New titles are added on a regular basis.

Besides call-in customers, we have mail-order customers in far-flung corners of the country.

Embracing Technology: Audiobook Downloads
In meeting changing technological trends, we have established relationships with established, reliable download companies to offer our listeners portals through which to download MP3's to their computer for convenient listening. Ourt partners include NAXOS Audiobooks, Classics Online and Nightingale-Conant.

Retail Shop
This facility has been available for some time at Hyde Square and is a growing part of the business. It’s been fun developing The Listeners’ Library, and hard-work too. Our CD shop is growing rapidly with over 2 000 titles available for purchase.

It’s a business that keeps growing and developing and who knows where it will lead?

The Rental Library offers an exciting catalogue of over 1 000 top titles - mainly complete and unabridged - on CD and a growing catalogue of over 70 titles on Playaway.

With no membership fees, choose between casual hiring or a set units contract.
