Wiltshire’s libraries will be reopening this week.

Despite the county’s Tier 2 status, most libraries will open again for Wiltshire’s avid readers.

After lockdown lifts on Thursday, December 3 council-staff libraries will start to reopen, Wiltshire Council has confirmed.

Library users will also be able to book in computers except at Aldbourne due to lack of space.

Cabinet member for libraries, Ian Blair-Pilling said: “Throughout the past three weeks of national restrictions, our library teams have done extremely well to continue to provide order and collect services, mobile library services and innovative online resources.

“We are looking forward to welcoming you back in person. Everyone’s safety is our utmost priority.”

Additionally, the mobile library will be back on the road.

Amesbury, Aldbourne, Bradford on Avon, Chippenham, Corsham, Cricklade, Devizes, Downton, Mere, Pewsey, Royal Wootton Bassett, Salisbury, Trowbridge, Warminster, Westbury and Wilton libraries will be open for limited browsing.

Calne, Malmesbury, Marlborough, Melksham and Tidworth will continue to offer order and collect service and bookable computers, as they have continued to do before and through the national restrictions brought in on November 5.

Box, Durrington, Ludgershall, Lyneham, Market Lavington, Netheravon, Purton, Ramsbury and Tisbury will remain closed for now.

The council said it continues to work with the library volunteers to reopen these as soon as possible.

For individual opening times please check the council’s website.
