Wiltshire records on Ancestry

Records from the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre have recently been added to Ancestry. The records cover the period 1538 to 1916 and include baptisms, marriages and burials in Church of England parishes across Wiltshire. 

These records can be accessed from home with a personal Ancestry subscription or for free by visiting any Wiltshire library or the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre and accessing Ancestry on the free public access computers. For more information, visit the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre news pages.

Donations to library stock

The library service can use your recently read books it's a great way to recycle them!

We welcome books that are in good physical condition and up to date, where this is important. Our experience suggests that books published within the last two to three years are most popular.

You can donate books via your local library.

Please note, all donated books are accepted on the understanding that the library service is free to use, sell or otherwise dispose of them to meet the needs of the service.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept donations of DVDs due to licensing issues.
