Mediatheque at Wrexham Library

The refurbished Wrexham Library is home to the first Mediatheque in Wales.

Among the hundreds of curated collections to explore there’s a special focus on film and television from Wales in Through the Dragon’s Eye. This collection brings together film and television programmes from the BFI National Archive and National Screen & Sound Archive of Wales. Learn about Wales’ early film pioneers with captivating Victorian and Edwardian snapshots of rugged landscapes, royal visits and sporting triumph. Dip into 1920s newsreels and tinted travelogues, or compare groundbreaking early fiction work with Wales’ first sound film and classic postwar features. Welsh-language TV favourites are available alongside contemporary drama, artists’ work and animation. An array of new discoveries awaits on this journey through Wales’ rich filmmaking legacy.
