Colwyn Bay Library
We first opened our doors to the public in April 1905 to celebrate the coronation of King Edward VII. The cost of building the library was met by the public, including the generous sponsor Andrew Carnegie, who donated £3,800 – that’s more than £400,000 in today’s money!
Our children’s library opened in 1933, and the building was extended in 1962. We also had a major refurbishment in 2016.
We share our library building with Grŵp Llandrillo Menai’s Bay Learning Centre. www.gllm.ac.uk/adult-and-community/
