Trowbridge Library will be closed for the day on Thursday August 19th, as it will be used as the location of four polling stations for the Swindon and Wiltshire Police & Crime Commissioner elections on that date. All other services will however continue as normal, and no other libraries in the county will be affected on the day.

Returning Officer and Wiltshire Council Chief Executive, Terence Herbert said “For anyone attending to vote, the four polling station areas will be cordoned off and will have a marshal to direct voters to the correct polling station.

“I’d like to apologise in advance to all library users in Trowbridge for any inconvenience caused by this temporary closure, and hope they’ll visit the library during its usual opening hours for the rest of the week.”

Voters are urged to check the details of their polling stations carefully, as they may be different to the May elections.
