Ideas & Plans for our Future

Here are some ideas that we will be exploring as we grow and develop Buckby Library & Hub as we aim to become a vital part of what Long Buckby has to offer our community and visitors. Also we would really like to hear what you think about our progress so far and what you would like to see from us in the future.

In addition to all that we already have going on, see Activities and Calendar, here are some of our other ideas.
