COVID-19 update - January 2021
We're pleased to be able to offer an order and collect service, with bookable computers, at a number of libraries across the county during lockdown.
Aldbourne, Amesbury, Bradford on Avon, Calne, Chippenham, Corsham, Cricklade, Devizes, Downton, Malmesbury, Marlborough, Melksham, Mere, Pewsey, Royal Wootton Bassett, Salisbury, Trowbridge, Warminster, Westbury and Wilton will offer this service. You are not able to drop-in and browse at these libraries. Further information about order and collect, including how to place an order and book a computer, can be found on the Order and collect service page.
Aldbourne Library is not able to offer computer access.
You are expected to use your local, nearest library to reduce unnecessary travel. Safety remains the priority and you will be asked to wear a face covering and use sanitiser before using a computer.
Libraries are permitted, by a Government exemption, to offer access to the public computer network for essential use if you can't otherwise access a computer or the internet. Essential needs can include job applications, benefit applications, accessing public services, financial information, online banking, for educational purposes, to keep in touch with family members or to support mental health.
The Home library service, providing books to the vulnerable in their own homes, will also continue.
Items will continue to be renewed automatically, currently to the end of February, so there is no rush to return items currently on loan.
Those libraries not currently operating will be kept under review, including the mobile libraries.
The online library content, which has proven to be hugely popular, will continue. Visit the Active Communities resources page for more information.
