Sadly we are once again closed to visitors, however, we are delighted to say that we can still offer our Select and Collect service during the latest lockdown. Please click here https://buckbylibraryhub.org/select-and-collect/ or on the Select and Collect tab to find all of the information you need to access this service. We will contact you as soon as your books are ready for collection which will be on a Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday during opening hours. Forms are also available from outside the Library or do ask a volunteer for one.

Alternatively if you like a surprise we will have some pre-selected book bags, by genre, available to grab and go. Just pop along during opening hours and please remember to have your Library card with you.

We will also be locating our Library Trolleys once again outside of the Library during opening hours. However, please note we will not return to the 50p a book system but if you could make a small donation that would be really appreciated.

How We Met Covid-19 Head On

Long Buckby is hugely proud of our response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have come together as we always knew we would, united in helping everyone through these challenging times: individuals, families and businesses.

There are so many doing so many great things that most people will never know about but this video gives just a hint of what this village is all about and also speaks for those not shown but who have, and still are, there for everyone.

Darcey Duck and the Epic Battle of Buckby by Arabella Florance

Have you heard of Arabella’s book? We really appreciate that Arabella cares so much about the library because we do too! We do hope that Arabella’s book will help generate awareness and support to keep libraries open all over the country. We are working hard to keep the library available for her and everyone in Long Buckby and nearby communities when we emerge from lockdown.
