It's being shut for just one day to give staff "essential training".

Salisbury is one of many libraries across Wiltshire that are being closed tomorrow (Wednesday 5th February).

Eight are being shut to bring all of their staff together for training purposes.

It means that customers do not need to return their books tomorrow and any fines that are due will not be charged either. 

Cllr Allison Bucknell, Cabinet Member for Libraries, said: 

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused, but we have chosen a Wednesday to keep disruption to a minimum, as this is the day when the fewest libraries are open. 

We don't take the closure of libraries lightly, but we hope residents will bear with us as this is the first full training day for libraries staff for several years.

This essential training will ensure that our staff continue to deliver a service that meets the needs of our residents.

We are always happy to take feedback on our services, so if anyone has any comments on how we can shape the service to best meet their needs, our friendly teams in our libraries throughout the county are there to help."
