Museum Librarian to retire

Our long-standing Librarian, Dr Lorna Haycock, has announced that she will be retiring in June, after 20 years service at the Wiltshire Heritage Museum. Lorna’s knowledge and expertise is well-known, and she has written a number of books about the history of Devizes. She brings the history of the town to life, through her many lectures, and also by her very popular guided walks. At the Museum, she has opened up the treasures of the Library to hundreds of researchers, and is assisted by a team of volunteers.

The Museum will now be starting the difficult task of finding a new Librarian to continue Lorna’s excellent work.
