There's an excellent website at www.libraries.wales. Featured at the moment is the Wales-wide project to get every child registered at their local library, particularly in Year 4. You can also link through to the Digital Library at the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth, which is making a wide range of archive material available on-line; for example "Welsh Newspapers Online". You can search and access over 1,100,000 pages from nearly 120 newspaper publications generally up to 1910. This also includes newspaper content that has been digitised by The Welsh Experience of World War One project.
On the Vale of Glamorgan Libraries website are various tools including guides to the e-books you can borrow and a link to a service called "Who Writes Like"; type in the name of your favourite author and it'll throw up a list of authors whose work is considered comparable and should match your taste. We have a physical copy in our reference section.
We don't have any plans for a further Book Sale but are still selling such donated books as we have, many of which have only been read once. There are also some audiobooks and DVDs to buy or borrow.
The Vale of Glamorgan Council continues to develop the Local Development Plan (LDP) and there are “Further Matters Arising Changes” (FMACs). The FMACs consultation will run from Friday 17th February until 31st March 2017 and the documents to support this process are available for inspection in Wenvoe Community Library.
