Staff at Monmouth Library celebrated 125 years since the Rolls Hall was built and given to the people of Monmouth on Friday 24th May.

Monmouth's Rolls Hall (now housing the town's library) was built in 1887 to commemorate the golden jubilee of Queen Victoria. It was a jubilee gift to the town by Lord Llangattock (J.A. Rolls), the father of Charles, one of the founders of Rolls-Royce. Portraits of Lord Rolls, his wife and son hang in the main library.

The staff were able to gather lots of memories of the building at the reminiscence session held in the morning and would like to continue taking notes from anyone who would like to share their stories.

The library is also interested in any old photographs of the building.
