Life imitates art for Manics at library


The Manic Street Preachers officially opened the new Cardiff Library, unveiling a plaque which reads "libraries gave us power" - a line from their 1996 hit A Design for Life.

The Blackwood group were given a tour of the £15 million building where they were shown the music, film and Welsh language areas of the library.
