In a series of moves, the current offices and library will be relocated to temporary accommodation and local council storage facilities to enable Pembrokeshire County Council to radically refurbish the existing building.
The Pembrokeshire Record Office is also on track to move in to its new home on the former site of Prendergast Junior School in Haverfordwest at the end of this year. Work preparing for the move has been going on for several months at the Record Office - based in Haverfordwest Castle - while maintaining a public service for historical research.
The relocation, being managed by Harrow Green, will see the transfer of the County Archive, which fills over two and a half kilometres of shelving.
The new building - which reflects a significant investment by Pembrokeshire County Council - will offer an increased level of service and significantly improved acclimatised facilities, including a larger, better equipped visitor space, rest area, better reprography facilities, archive conservation studio and a meeting/education room.
