Lib Dem Councillors Elizabeth Clark, Simon Pickard and Jon Aylwin celebrate the re-opening of Cathays Library

The Cathays Focus Team is delighted that the newly-refurbished Cathays Library has opened its doors to the public.
Work started last September after the Lib Dem-led Council agreed to invest almost £1 million to refurbish the magnificent 100-year old Carnegie Building.
LIBRARY TRANSFORMED
Cathays Councillor Jon Aylwin: "The library's roof had suffered extensive damage and the entire west wing of the building had to be closed to the public. The whole library has now been transformed and modernised. The new library boasts many more books, computer facilities and improved public toilets."
Nigel Howells, Lib Dem Assembly candidate added, "This is great news. Many branch libraries in cities across the UK are facing the threat of closure. The Liberal Democrats in Cardiff have made it a priority to invest in local libraries such as Cathays, as well as opening the iconic new Central Library. It's a massive contrast to the previous Labour-led Council which had plans to shut Cathays Library."


Cathays Library is open 9am - 6pm every weekday, and has late opening until 7pm on Wednesdays. The library is open on Saturday until 5.30pm, and closes for lunch 1-2pm everyday. It has a children's area, free WiFi, 15 public computers, a community room available for hire, and lots more!
