Sadly, mine has finished.

I have emailed the library to express my disappointment.  I can't see me getting to the library any time soon.

Sections of the library are used by the university students, but there seems to be a group of local young people using the computers in the library just for games etc. I am afraid it annoys me intensely to see that.

Ancestry is still available at home through library Membership in Buckinghamshire, and most of the community run libraries opened again as soon as the rules allowed ... ( I'm on the committee of ours)

No doubt it will end soon though - but it isn't something the local library has any say in.

I`ve been/am very grateful for it !

It`s availability in diferrent areas is probably the same as recycling, varying all over the UK.

I read recently on the Ancestry Library Edition page that access will be available for home users up to June.
