Dowlais Library

Due to the coronavirus, many museums and galleries across the country are closed. Please check their websites and social media channels for up to date information about reopening dates and times.

Dowlais Library is one of the branch library buildings of Merthyr Libraries, which is the public library service of Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council. We loan books and non book items; we subscribe to online and other resources so that our members can access them freely; we provide PCs and related resources so that those who need them can use them; we put on events to promote reading, literacy, finding out, and generally showing in as many ways as possible what can be found in libraries!
