Upon becoming a community managed library we will need to be self-financing. We are very grateful to the Long Buckby Parish Council who have agreed to pay for the annual lease costs but we will otherwise have to find the funds to keep the library open. These will include, for example, heat and light, insurance, legal fees, website costs, repairs and renewals, training and so on. We want to expand the activities on offer and encourage more visitors from surrounding parishes and to do so we need support.
Please help! You can give one-off, regular or annual donations by standing order through your bank, building society or post office.
