Dinas Powys Library & Activity Centre (DiPLAC) is a volunteer-run Community Library serving the people of Dinas Powys in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales (Registered Charity Number 1169059)

On 29 April 2019, we reopened after an extensive internal renovation; a project part-funding by the European Union through Welsh Government Ministers. This will help ensure a financially-sustainable future for the volunteer-run community library. The work created a new kitchen and café area, and a function room that can be hired for diverse activities. DiPLAC hosts regular events, including Thursday Coffee Morning, Monday and Wednesday Lego Clubs, and Tuesday pre-school Storytime (see below). Phone the library for details and for availability of places. We stock the usual range of recycling bags (kitchen, garden, plastics/glass/paper etc) behind the counter. Computers can also be booked for use in our IT section. We also photocopying and other services.
