Libraries are a success in Wiltshire

Wiltshire libraries enjoyed a successful Libraries Week (9-14 October), with people attending author talks, displays from the archives, a sci-fi and fantasy day, children's activities, and an official opening celebration in Devizes.

Conservative Councillor, Darren Henry, portfolio holder for libraries, said:

"I'm delighted that Libraries Week was such an outstanding success throughout Wiltshire. The diverse range of events on offer meant that there was something for people of all ages, and it's great to see our libraries being used in so many different and creative ways.

"Libraries aren't just places to borrow books; increasingly, they're also used for community events, meetings, activities, and to access other council services. Libraries Week is a great example of how these buildings can be used to benefit local communities."
