Random Fact Of The Week

national library wales storage spaceDid you know……

That if you laid all the shelving in the National Library of Wales based in Aberystwyth from end to end it would stretch 118 miles in total.

Thats the distance from the cathedral city of Lichfield in Staffordshire all the way to London as the crow flies.




And because the library is one of only 6 copyright libraries in the UK, entitling it to a copy of every book, journal and publication produced in Britain and Ireland (about 4,000 a week!) that 118 miles of shelving is fast running out, with the library looking to expand once again to accomodate its vast and every growing collection.
