Wiltshire Council’s Library Services are continuing to support those people who love reading throughout the county, even if the buildings themselves aren’t in use.

The Libraries Team have come up with some innovative ways to develop its remote libraries service to keep the whole family connected and occupied during this time, and all have been well received. In the last few weeks the service has seen:

  • 177 new members joining online
  • eBook loans up 43%, eAudio up 118% and eMagazines up 90% compared to same time last year
  • Online Rhyme Time sessions viewed more than 12,400 times so far – with viewers as far away as Australia!

Wiltshire’s elibrary services can be found at http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/libraries-ebooks. The online Rhyme Times Facebook sessions can be found on the libraries’ Facebook pages. Regular updates can be found by following @WiltsCouncil and @WiltsLibraries on Twitter.
