THE NATIONAL LIBRARY OF WALES
Founded by Royal Charter, granted in 1907, the National Library of Wales came into existence
on January 1, 1909. It is maintained by an annual grant-in-aid from Her Majesty's Treasury. One
of the six libraries in the British Isles (including Eire) entitled to certain privileges under the Copyright
Act, it now (1959) contains nearly 2,000,000 printed works (books, pamphlets, newspapers,
journals), 30,000 volumes of manuscripts, about 3,500,000 deeds and other documents, together with
a very large collection of maps, prints, drawings, portraits, etc. It is a general reference library; it
specialises also in printed, manuscript, and graphic material relating to Wales and the other Celtic
countries.
Admission is by Reader's Ticket, an application form for which may be obtained from the
Librarian.
