The aim of this case study was to measure the compliance, or not, of the library services and resources of Wesfleur public library to the twenty- two principles of UNESCO Public Library Manifesto of 1994. The UNESCO Public Library Manifesto is a global guideline and framework for public libraries around the world to use and also to measure their library services and resources. The City of Cape Town has adopted this manifesto for all the public libraries in the Metropole. Wesfleur public library is one of these public libraries. Limited research has been done globally to measure library services and resources with the UNESCO Public Library Manifesto. No research has been done in South Africa, and or, the Western Cape to measure public library services with reference to the UNESCO principles. This study is a contribution towards filling this gap.
