Visit by Dr Kay Swinburne MEP

Dr Kay Swinburne will be visiting The National Library of Wales today.

The National Library is eager to develop its relationship with Europe and a Member of the European Parliament Dr Kay Swinburne is well placed to help us achieve this aim. Two of her colleagues in Europe – Jill Evans MEP and Derek Vaughan MEP – visited us recently. The Library is grateful to the three Members for their interest in the work of the Library and for their excellent support.

Dr Kay Swinburne was born in Aberystwyth and raised in Llandysul, Ceredigion where she attended the local grammar school. Her first degree was in Biochemistry and Microbiology from King's College London, followed by a Ph.D. in medical research and an MBA from the University of Surrey. Kay was elected as a Conservative Member of the European Parliament for Wales in 2009.

Chief Executive and Librarian Dr Aled Gruffydd Jones commented:

“The National Library of Wales is one of the great research libraries of Europe and a knowledge centre that rates among the most important. Our new Strategy – Knowledge For All – will be launched soon, and if we can attract even further funding from Europe  then the impact of our services on the lives of individuals within our communities will be much greater”.
