We are deep in the throes of creating a new exhibition area on Presteigne and the surrounding area.  With a new permanent display on the town, interactive computers, chill-out space and lots of books and games for all ages, it will be agreat place to drop in.  Accompanying this will be a temporary exhibition gallery, set to feature a whole range of community displays and themes.  To find out more about this project have a look at our Community Collections page.
