Narberth Town Council met for the first time in their new home this week, the town’s library in St. James Street.

Faced with the prospect of losing the town’s historic, vibrant and much-loved library to cut-backs, the council became involved in a campaign to save it, along with the Friends of Narberth Library and Pembrokeshire County Council.

The new, three-way partnership means that the facility can continue to provide a popular and well-used library service to the people of Narberth.

The town council has taken on the lease of the building and its running costs, while the Friends group will be helping to run the library with community volunteers.

The county council will continue to supply stock, IT and some paid staffing.
