HAY-on-Wye's library will move into the town's new primary school next month.

At a well attended meeting, Hay-on-Wye Library supporters (HOWLS) once again expressed their sadness that the library would be moving from its current location.

Powys County Council had also planned to cut the library opening hours by 50 percent - meaning the library would only be open for 12 hours per week.

HOWLS officers met with Peter Florence and Becky Shaw from the Hay Festival who agreed that the festival would continue to financially contribute to staffing costs and so the new library will be open for 19.5 hours per week to include mornings and several late afternoons (3.30 to 6pm).

The planned move into the new primary school is set for the week beginning May 8.

You can find more information about HOWLS on its Facebook page. The AGM will take place on June 20 in the new library, Hay School.
