The National Library of Wales – Closure of the Building to the Public

17 March 2020

Due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19 and the well-being of readers and visitors, the Library building in Aberystwyth is closed to the public for an indefinite period. As part of this decision, all public events on Library premises will be postponed or cancelled initially for a period of three months. The Library’s wide range of digital resources will be available throughout this period.

The Library will continue to be open to staff and contractors. The situation is assessed daily and arrangements are being put in place to enable staff to work from home.

The Library will share details of further developments on social media and on our our Library website.
