Changes to the running of local Libraries have been implemented

September has arrived and the change of season brings with it the implementation of the next phase of the new Library strategy.

As of Monday 4th September, Covingham, Even Swindon, Liden, Moredon & Rodbourne, Old Town, Penhill, Pinetrees, Upper Stratton and Wroughton libraries will now be run by the local community.

The Parish Councils and other Community Groups have received funding and support to run these libraries. They will also remain on the Swindon library network with regard to book stock and some staffing so you will continue to be able to use your Swindon Library card in these locations.

Swindon Borough Council will, however, continue to provide a library service at Central, Highworth, Park, North Swindon and West Swindon libraries.

For further details on the community groups that will run the Community Libraries, please see the Swindon Libraries website.

For news of events, services and other goings on, you can find Swindon Libraries on Facebook and on Twitter.
