Collections at National Library of Wales damaged

The fire over the weekend on the roof of the National Library of Wales seems to have unfortunately damaged some of the new collections housed there. The fire broke out on the roof  and the water used to put out the flames unfortunately soaked through and damaged some of the valuable collections stored there. The library has millions of books plus manuscripts, archives, maps, pictures, photographs, films and music. Some of the damaged items have been taken to Oxford by a team of salvage experts to hopefully restore. There's more at the BBC website.
