Welsh libraries get funding boost

The Welsh Government has announced that it will allocate nearly £2.7 million to the development of museums, archives and libraries across Wales.

About £1.7m will be used to widen access to collections in libraries, archives and museums, while another £1m will be used to modernise seven public libraries, the Welsh Government announced on 17 April.

The move is, in part, a response to the recommendations of the Culture and Poverty report published in March 2014. That study had a remit to make recommendations on how cultural and heritage bodies can broaden access to culture in ways that contribute to reducing poverty, the government said.
