ROYAL Wootton Bassett’s library will be reopening for the first time since lockdown.

It is set to open its doors by the end of September as students return to school after the summer holiday.

The library in Borough Fields will only be offering an order and collect service, with computers available for advance booking online.

More than 7,000 people answered a survey out by Wiltshire Council saying they wanted libraries to be prioritised after lockdown.

A spokesperson for Wiltshire Council said: “Chippenham, Salisbury and Trowbridge libraries have reopened and we’re continuing our phased approach to reopening libraries in the county, with a further 11 libraries set to open in the coming weeks, three later this month and eight by the end of September.”
