BBC News – Wales’ National Library launches plan one year after fire
“The National Library of Wales’ chief executive has set out new plans for the institution a year after a fire destroyed archives there.
Aled Gruffydd Jones launched a three-year strategy twelve months after the fire caused £5m of damage to the library’s roof.
Proposals include leading a debate on establishing a National Archive for Wales.
It also aims to develop projects with the public sector.
Mr Jones told staff the plan gave them a chance “not only to look back”, but also an opportunity “to look forward”.
He added: “Our vision is for Welsh people everywhere to be connected with knowledge important to all aspects of their lives.””
