OLD Town’s library has extended opening hours.

The Devizes Road library is now open from 11am to 4.30pm, Tuesday to Friday and 10am to 1pm on Saturday.

Librarian Deborah Lamb said the longer opening hours have proven popular: “With the summer reading challenge, we’ve had a lot of people coming in. It’s been really popular.”

Old Town Library is at the Devizes Road Arts Centre. It has been funded by South Swindon Parish Council since last Autumn.
