The Electric Library of Lake Guerlédan – Electricity Museum was born in 1992, under the leadership of a handful of enthusiasts determined to perpetuate the memory of what was the construction of the Guerlédan dam and the arrival of electricity in the Breton countryside. 

It was in 2013 that the management of the museum was entrusted to the Pontivy community Tourist Office and the collection was recognized as being of community interest. The collection, comprising more than 900 objects, was created thanks to donations from individuals and businesses.
For around thirty years, the Electrothèque has pursued its objectives: to safeguard, promote and transmit the memory of the industrial and historical heritage of the Guerlédan lake area.
