We welcome offers of sponsorship for a permanent website!

National Library Day Friends of Buckingham Library is a new independent charity established to support Buckingham Library.

We believe the library is a very important community facility for Buckingham. Not just a lender of books and films, but a community hub and a source of information and culture. Membership is now open to all residents and business in North Bucks who want to support Buckingham library.

The Friends promote for the public benefit of the inhabitants of Buckingham and the surrounding area Buckingham Library, by support, assistance and enhancement through the activities of the group of Friends.
