CEREDIGION AM Elin Jones, has welcomed the announcement that the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth will benefit from £3.5 million of additional capital funding. The announcement was made by the Welsh Government’s Finance Minister as part of the Wales Infrastructure Investment Plan, designed to stimulate the economy.
Elin Jones said:
“This £3.5 million of additional capital investment will go a long way to ensuring that the Library can properly rebuild after the fire in the spring, in a way that secures the building better against future risks. This is an iconic institution in Wales and a major employer in Ceredigion, and I welcome the Government’s announcement.”
