About Cwtsh

Ever since Newport City Council closed Stow Hill branch library in March, 2013 a committed band of people have been striving to re-open it. Together they  formed the Handpost Community Library Association (CWTSH'S original registered name), held an Auction to raise funds and also organised regular Open Mics at the Murenger House, Newport, to raise money to help run the old library building.

We tried running a childrens library but that had to close due to lack of support, so we are no longer the Handpost Community Library Association but simply Cwtsh.

The space is now used as a big white box for classes, presentations and art exhibitions.
