Show you care - give your National Library a cwtch!

Your National Library needs you! On Friday 15th July the National Library of Wales is celebrating 100 years since the laying of its foundation stone by King George V. To mark this historic event they are calling upon their many visitors and supporters to form a human chain around the building in Aberystwyth. They have estimated that they will need approximately 450 people to encompass the entire building, so they will need all the help they can get! If you can spare the time and would like to show your support you will need to be there by 2.15pm and wear something red...the lovely people at NLW will reward you with drinks and cake afterwards!

Happy centenary from all your colleagues at Swansea Metropolitan University libraries!


  1. I have very happy memories of NLW from my time as a student in Aberystwyth. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make the Cwtch, but will be there in spirit! It's definitely worth the visit if you have got the time - the NLW is a beautiful building with some wonderful resources, and Aberystwyth is a lovely town.

  2. Best-kept secret art gallery in Wales! Plenty of books too...

  3. Also a very nice cafe!
