Libraries, museums and archives in Wales will benefit from over £2.3million Welsh Government funding to develop and enhance their services.

The main focus of the funding will be to support museums, archives and libraries to widen access to their services and increase participation in culture, particularly for people living in some of Wales’ most deprived areas, so that more people can benefit from the varied services they offer.

The funding includes £1million to modernise six community libraries in Bala, Brecon, Cardiff, Haverfordwest, Holywell, and Merthyr Tydfil, It will be used to establish the libraries as new community hubs, where customers can access a range of other services such as housing or leisure facilities, as well as an extensive range of library amenities. It will help them to improve their services and attract new users.
