The facility includes three classrooms, computer suite, computer suite, office space and crèche.

Councillor Lis Burnett, cabinet member for regeneration and education, said: "Education and lifelong learning is central to the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s regeneration work and where better to locate a learning hub than the library, the first port of call for anyone seeking information.

"This latest investment into Barry Library provides the whole Vale with a first class facility, purpose built to help residents of all ages to gain skills and knowledge and broaden their horizons."
