Readers can also pay council bills by credit or debit card and find out more about council services at the library.
Kay Thomas, is principal librarian for Powys County Council and she said: "It is heart-warming to see a community which values its resources like Llanwrtyd Wells does, and I am very impressed that the volunteers are so committed that they are trying out varying opening hours to find ones which suit residents best, enabling the most people to benefit from the library. All credit to Llanwrtyd."
Ms Thomas added; "New volunteers are always welcome to join the small but cheery band at the library. If you could spare a few hours to clean the library or open it to the public, please ask at the library for a volunteer form and to find out more about what is involved."
