The Mbabane Library Association is a private organisation, staffed entirely by voluntary workers. The library has been providing books for recreational reading since 1927. It is not a reference library.

Membership is open to the public, with an annual subscription of E300.00 being payable half yearly or yearly. Application forms are available at the library. A deposit of E100.00 is required, to be refunded when the member leaves the Association.

This is a non-profit organisation, subscriptions go towards the purchase of new books for the library.
