A former town library in the heart of Builth Wells is set to go under the hammer.

The property, which was built in the 1970s, will be auctioned off along with 11 other Powys County Council-owned properties at the Metropole Hotel in Llandrindod Wells on March 5.

Located on Builth Wells’ High Street, the former library has a guide price of £140,000.

The library itself was moved into the old primary school building at Antur Gwy in 2017, in a move that Powys County Council said was a “very successful project and demonstrates a superb asset in the community of Builth Wells and surrounding areas”.

The library is currently one of 10 across the county which are under threat of closure after the local authority announced budget cuts of £200,000.
