Pembrokeshire Libraries

New Haverfordwest Library, Gallery and Tourist Information

In January 2017, work started on an ambitious scheme to transform the former Riverside indoor market in Haverfordwest into a new County Library and Gallery. 

The new facility will provide tourism information; a Life Hub zone - with access to financial and health information - as well as a coffee shop and a children's ‘play and discover' library. 

Meanwhile, the Gallery will exhibit works of art from the National Library's collections. 

It is anticipated that the flagship project will act as a catalyst for the regeneration of Haverfordwest by enticing visitors to the top quality exhibitions which will be displayed on site. 

The project is the result of an exciting partnership between Pembrokeshire County Council, the National Library of Wales and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority. 

Funding for the scheme includes over £285,000 from the Welsh Government to develop the new County Library and £90,000 towards the gallery fit-out from the Wolfson Foundation - a charity supporting science, medicine, the arts and education. 

Locally-based contractors, WB Griffiths and Son Limited, began enabling work in December 2016 and it is planned that the new facility will be open the latter part of 2018.

Courses through the medium of Welsh. In order to make it viable for us to us to run courses we need a minimum number of people to take part. Our aim is to provide courses bilingually wherever possible. When you enquire about taking part in a course we will ask you if you would prefer to take part exclusively in Welsh. We will provide courses exclusively in Welsh when numbers reach the minimum level.
