Not sure whether this is true worldwide, but in the US, Proquest, the vendor for the library version of Ancestry, announced the extension of home access to the library version through the end of September and said they would reconsider then what to do. It should also be mentioned that the library version is quite different from what you get with an individual subscription. While you can download images, you cannot attach them to your Ancestry family tree. In fact, with the library version, you have no ability to edit your family tree on Ancestry at all. For those us who only use Ancestry as a data source and keep our tree elsewhere, home access to the library version is a huge gift. If, however, you want to maintain your tree on Ancestry you will still need your own individual subscription.

I'm in Hertfordshire and we can  log in to our  local  library with our membership card and pin number from own computer at home. We get free access to Ancestry but not Find my Past. Not sure for how much longer though. Jane
