This magnificent building was completed in 1916 and is situated high on Panglais hill in Aberystwyth with stunning view of Cardigan Bay. It must be one of the best positioned National Libraries in the world. There is a wealth of information on the Library’s various websites but navigation is not the easiest but it is well worth persevering.
