These records can be accessed from home with a personal Ancestry subscription or for free by visiting any Wiltshire library or the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre and accessing Ancestry on the free public access computers.

Donations to library stock

The library service can use your recently read books it's a great way to recycle them!

We welcome books that are in good physical condition and up to date, where this is important. Our experience suggests that books published within the last two to three years are most popular.

You can donate books via your local library.

Please note, all donated books are accepted on the understanding that the library service is free to use, sell or otherwise dispose of them to meet the needs of the service.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept donations of DVDs due to licensing issues.
