Village library for Pewsey set to open doors

  • Published

A £900,000 library is due to open its doors later in a Wiltshire village.

The new building in Pewsey, replaces a temporary service which has been provided from a mobile library since the previous building closed in April.

A Wiltshire Council spokesman said the library had an additional 3,000 books - with many chosen by local residents.

The library will have longer opening hours and will be open five days a week including Saturday morning and until 2000 on Tuesdays.

It also houses a meeting room so council staff can discuss matters with local residents, and a personal care room which will provide washing and changing facilities for the disabled.
