National Library of Wales

On Tuesday Class 5 visited The National Library of Wales.

The National Library of Wales is the national legal deposit library of Wales.

It is the biggest library in Wales, holding over 6.5 million books and periodicals, and the largest collections of archives, portraits, maps and photographic images in Wales. The Library is also home to the national collection of Welsh manuscripts, the National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales, and the most comprehensive collection of paintings and topographical prints in Wales.


We worked in the education room where we had the opportunity to look at artefacts from Tudor times. We also got to see behind the scenes and visit parts of the library that are not open to the public.
