The Wrexham Library building is 50 years old this year!

In December 1972, Wrexham Library opened its doors to the people of Wrexham. At the time it had a music library, study carrels for private study and a children’s library (with the kinderpit!).

To celebrate, we are holding an exhibition to showcase Wrexham Library over the years and we need your help to make sure it displays everything that has made it special to Wrexham residents since it opened.

Do you have a story to tell about the library?

Maybe it brings back fond family memories? Do you remember your first visit? Maybe you saw it opening? Perhaps you even met your future partner there? Whatever your story, we would like to hear it.

Get news and info from your local council – sign-up for email bulletins.

Do you have photos or memorabilia?

Do you have any photographs of the library over the years that you would like to be part of the exhibition? Perhaps you have some memorabilia – certificates, original library cards or leaflet from events?

If you have a story or something that could be used as part of the exhibition, you can take it along to your local library, call us on 01978 292090 or email

Please send us you photos, items and memories before the end of October (but the sooner the better as we are looking forward to seeing and hearing them!).

The exhibition will be on display later this year, when there will also be plenty of events to celebrate.
