More details of Rhiwbina Library improvements

More details of the proposed investment in Rhiwbina Library have been unveiled.

We first reported on the plans late last month and now the council has published more information about the proposed refurbishment of the library building to create the newest facility in the city’s network of community hubs.

The aim will be to deliver more council and partner organisation services there, based on the theme of wellbeing.

With funding from Welsh Government’s Integrated Care Fund for the development, the Council is proposing to create:

  1. new and improved reception facilities,

  2. additional meeting spaces,

  3. new library shelving and seating areas,

  4. improved IT facilities and Wi-Fi coverage,

  5. refurbished public toilets,

  6. improvements to the exterior of the buildng.

The refurbishment would include dementia-friendly internal redecoration throughout the public space and the creation of an attractive and usable outdoor space.

Future services will be shaped in partnership with the local community and will include a variety of health and wellbeing focussed activities.

Cabinet Member for Housing and Communities, Councillor Lynda Thorne, said: “Building on the success of our community hubs programme, and most recently the transformation of Whitchurch and Rhydypennau libraries into modern, fit for purpose wellbeing hubs, Rhiwbina Library is now set for investment and regeneration that will bring a variety of benefits to the local community.

“Hubs provide more services and better services in a joined up way.”

Further details on the proposal are now available on the Cardiff Neighbourhood Regeneration site where you can also submit your views.

If you want to discuss the project with a member of the regeneration team, you can arrange a call-back by emailing your contact details to

The deadline for responses is Wednesday, March 3. Views expressed will be considered in the development of final proposals for the scheme.
