Buckby Library and Hub is a community run group formed to provide services and activities to the Northamptonshire village of Long Buckby and its surrounding villages.
With the coronavirus epidemic, Northamptonshire County Council has suspended all volunteering in NCC libraries. The library in Long Buckby is highly dependent on its volunteers and will be closed for the time being. Books will not be due during the closure period.
Sadly, we have had to postpone two forthcoming events: the Concert with Abington Wind Band and St Lawrence Singers at St Lawrence Church on April 26th, and the Flower Power, Poetry and Prose evening at the library on May 1st. We hope to hold them in the autumn and will keep you posted.
Buckby Library & Hub is delighted that Long Buckby’s community choir, Elation Community Voices, has agreed to support the library as its charity for 2020. ECV holds two fundraising concerts in the village each year as well as other events such as quizzes. Thank you ECV!
