Ruth Jones

Fifty years after moving into the library building we all know, Wrexham Library is celebrating!

Over the next few months there will be plenty of events to enjoy and mark the occasion, and its kicking off with an exhibition of the library from the day it opened in 1972 right up to the present day.

Are you the victim of a loan shark? Call 0300 123 311.

Call into the library over the next few months and you will be able to see how the library has looked and evolved over the years including the day the first public computers arrived in 1983 and the reopening of the refurbished library with Gavin and Stacey‘s Ruth Jones in 2010.

You’ll also be able to see some innovative technology that made Wrexham Library a ‘first in Wales’ as well as photos of staff members in fancy dress.

There is also a book by the exhibition where you can write down your memories of the library. It’ll be wonderful to see what you remember and hopefully what you write will ignite memories for others – we’ve already heard from one person about the library’s old orange chairs (#IYKYK)!

When it comes to the cost of living, making sure you claim all the help and support you’re entitled to could make a huge difference.
