About Us and Our Aims

Pembrokeshire Library Service is part of the Cultural Services department, which also manages our arts, Archives and Museum Services, as well as Scolton Manon Country Park 

Pembrokeshire Library Service exists to make a positive difference to people’s lives; to reduce disadvantage; to inspire lifelong learning, and to create stronger and healthier communities.

We will do this by: delivering consistently excellent services; by targeting our activity at people and communities in most need, and by working collaboratively to deliver more than we could achieve on our own.

Between April 2013 and March 2014 our libraries had:

  • 537,287 visits (equivalent to every man, woman and child in Pembrokeshire visiting more than four times a year)
  • 482,727 loans of books and other resources
  • 69,559 uses of our free internet access computers
  • 12,398 uses of our free Wifi service

We asked our customers what they thought of our libraries:

  • 99.5% of adults
  • 99% of children
  • 98% of teenagers were satisfied or very satisfied with our service

What our users say:

'I love the library. It helps me with my homework and everything else. It's wonderful.'

Our priorities have been inspired by our analysis of what the best libraries deliver. We aspire to be amongst them – to be the best public library service in Wales. We will achieve this by delivering three overarching priorities:

Priority 1: Creating stronger and healthier communities

Priority 2: Reducing poverty

Priority 3: Delivering excellence, efficiently
