Service a model for rest of Wales
THE library service in Carmarthenshire is a model for the rest of Wales, according to a Welsh Government report.
The council has been praised for its commitment to the future of its library service and for its forward-thinking approach in creating a new digital learning environment alongside its more traditional offering.
Carmarthenshire is the best in Wales for both its investment in reading materials and spending per head on library provision, as well as the third highest in Wales for PC provision.
Executive board member for culture, councillor Peter Hughes-Griffiths, told the executive board: “The report praises the commitment of the council to the service itself, it praises our strategy which sets out a robust framework for the future and also the variety of what we provide within the service across the county.”
