There has been a public library in Llandudno since 1855, when it was part of a complex which is now the site of the Grand Hotel near the pier. A specially-built library was opened in 1873 on Mostyn Street and Reform Street, and the two Camperdown elms at the front of our building date from then!
Our current library was built on the same site, and opened on September 15th, 1910. Some of the cost was met by sponsor Andrew Carnegie, who donated £4,000 – that’s more than £400,000 in today’s money!
There were major extensions to the building in 1938, and again in 1994, followed by a modern refurbishment in 2011.
