Libraries, museums and archives across Wales are set to benefit from a £2.8 million Welsh Assembly Government grants package, which was announced today by Minister for Heritage Alun Ffred Jones.

Nine public libraries will share £1,470,172 in capital grants for modernisation work, while a further £858,075 in revenue funding has been allocated to develop the work of libraries in Wales, including grants to 17 library projects ranging from developing literacy, information skills, partnership working, online services and encouraging more people to visit libraries.

Museums in north Wales which will receive grants include Buckley Library - set to receive a grant of £300,00 towards modernisation - while Wrexham County Library service will benefit from £165,000 to lead on an all-Wales programme to promote and increase usage of libraries.
