The Lib Dems have invested to restore Cathays Library, Labour wanted to shut it.

New figures show that the refurbished Cathays Library is going from strength to strength!


Since taking over from Labour in 2004, the Liberal Democrat-led Council has spent over £26 million on improving and building new local libraries. This includes the award-winning Central Library and the new library on Ninian Road, as well as refurbishing and re-opening the Grade II listed Cathays Library.


VISITORS & BORROWING UP


Councillor Jon Aylwin said, "Visits to Cathays Library are up 80% and over 1,000 new residents have registered for a free membership card since the refurbishment.


"More books have been borrowed than ever, and computer bookings have more than trebled!"
As part of the refurbishment, the Whitchurch Road wing of the building was brought back into use, and a new community room was added.
Councillor Elizabeth Clark added, "This shows what the Lib Dems said all along - that our local library was a fantastic asset that just needed bringing up-to-date for the 21st Century.


"Labour wanted to close this library when they ran the Council - but the Lib Dems have invested in making it a superb facility."
