Other News
We wish a fond farewell to our librarian Nichola Farr who has been at Rhiwbina Library since 2012. Nichola has been appointed Senior Librarian for Brecon’s new Cultural Hub which is due to open next year. We’re sorry (gutted, in fact) to be losing her and wish her all the very best for the future.
