Good News as National Library reopens on Saturdays

The National Library of Wales is a wonderful place to visit with exceptional staff.

Its importance to both Aberystwyth and to Wales goes way beyond the beautiful and iconic building which overlooks the town.

Like many others, I expressed my concern at the time at its having to close on Saturday mornings due to budget cuts.

However, the good news is it is reopening on Saturdays from 8 May, although collections will be limited to items ordered in advance.

The meeting rooms, café and shop will also be open to the public.

This is good news indeed. The Library provides a huge boost to the tourism economy of Mid Wales by attracting people whose sole purpose in visiting Aberystwyth is to trace their ancestry. This institution belongs to the people of Wales and must be allowed to continue the excellent work and service currently carried out.
