Swindon library logoThe days are getting longer and with only weeks to go before spring, things are starting to look a bit brighter.

Some of our library staff continue to be redeployed to support essential COVID-19 work within our community and therefore the majority of our libraries remain temporarily closed.
Whilst Central Library remains open, all loans are now renewed until May 2021 so only make a journey if it’s essential.
To keep up to date with any changes that affect the library services, you can check the Swindon Borough Council website, the Library blog as well as our social media pages: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Highworth, North Swindon, Park and West Swindon Libraries remain temporarily closed, however, Central Library is open and opening hours are extended to six days a week.
