The Rand Club is one of the most interesting buildings in Johannesburg, every time I visit it I learn a new secret or story. It really never ceases to amaze me. The first time I visited the club I still had my old blog, (you can read the post here, don’t judge my horrible photography skills!) and I’ve been obsessed ever since. One of my favourite rooms in the whole club is the Library.
The library is something straight out of a scene from The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, if you’re not a fan then just picture a beautiful classic library that would have Mr. Darcy doing backflips. The lending Library is only available to members but once you’re in chances are you’ll have a hard time getting leaving. When I visited I went with my good friends Lucy and Angie as part of a Jobest Takeover weekend, you can read more about the entire experience here.
One of the best parts of the library are the shelves they curators have left open to put your feet on, it makes me smile every time to see distinguished members sitting in armchairs with their feet in the bookshelves.
