What people say...

“Benthyg Cymru has been supporting us to establish a Library of Things in RCT. The support we have received has been exemplary, we have a named Benthyg person to mentor and guide us as we build our library. They are on hand to answer our sometimes-daft questions and keep us on track throughout the ups and downs of our journey to launching our community Library of Things.  Not sure we would be anywhere near where we are now if we did not have the support of Benthyg Cymru. The amazing tool kit that has been put together covers everything that is needed and more when it comes to the paperwork necessary to start lending. Thank you Benthyg Cymru.”
