Yes. All libraries in Powys have boards for displaying notices, and many have space for artistic or informative exhibitions.
Yes, as part of the normal stock management process, libraries regularly dispose of items no longer required for our shelves. Most libraries will have a shelf or trolley of books and audio-visual materials marked for sale. Occasionally, larger amounts of stock will be sold over 2 or 3 days in one of our libraries, and these sales are advertised locally.
We welcome feedback. You can make your views known directly to the member of staff in charge at your local library, or you may write to:
Powys Library, Information and Archive Service
Powys County Council
Powys LD1 5LG
Alternatively, there is an on-line feedback form.
Telephone the library or e-mail them directly.
Yes. You are welcome to donate items that are of current, good quality content and in brand new condition, for consideration for general library stock. If they do not meet these standards, they will be accepted on condition that the donor consents to our selling them in library book sales. Donated items added to stock will be treated in the same way as any other stock item, and cannot be subject to restrictions imposed by the donor. Donations of materials of local interest are also welcomed, and will be assessed with regard to suitability by local studies staff. Original records such as those from official bodies, societies, businesses or individuals will be passed to the County Archives Office. These can be donated or placed on deposit (long term loan). The Archives Office is responsible for locating, preserving and making accessible documents relating to all aspects of the history of Powys.
Yes, some of our libraries have rooms available for community groups to hire for meetings, talks, training courses and similar activities. There is a charge for this service. Ask your local librarian for venues and details or check the library homepages.
