A NUMBER of Wiltshire Council libraries will keep the county reading by providing an order and collect service, following the introduction of the national Covid-19 restrictions.

Malmesbury Library will continue to offer an order and collect service and bookable computers, just as they have done recently.

Cricklade Library will close temporarily until at some point until after the restrictions have been lifted.

The council’s mobile library service, which only got back on the road recently, will unfortunately not be operating at present but this will be regularly reviewed.

All items currently borrowed, that were due back from November 9 onwards, will continue to be automatically renewed.

All libraries offering this service will follow social distancing and Covid-19 secure guidelines.

Cllr Ian Blair-Pilling, cabinet member for libraries, said: “Our libraries team continues to innovate and adapt during this difficult period, and are committed to ensuring they can provide some services while the restrictions are in place

“A good selection of books will certainly help people and momentarily whisk their imagination away from some of the stresses of life.”
