Libraries, museums and archives given £2m boost

More than £2m is being spent to encourage the Welsh public to make more use of their libraries, museums and archives, and to digitise more collections for online audiences.

The money from the Welsh government includes around £1m to modernise six public libraries - at Canton in Cardiff, Cwmbran, Morriston in Swansea, Bridgend, Newtown and Haverfordwest.

Dr Jenny Kidd, a creative industries lecturer at Cardiff University, and John Marjoram, of the Federation of Museums and Galleries of Wales, gave their reaction to Bethan Rhys Roberts of BBC Radio Wales.
