After discussions with the Library Supporters Group, the County Council have proposed that Long Buckby Library becomes a ‘Community Managed Library’ and remains in its current premises.
The following is from their website:
It is proposed that Long Buckby Library no longer forms part of NCC statutory
library provision. A needs assessment has identified that this library is within 5
miles of a library remaining within NCC statutory provision at Daventry.
As this would be outside NCC’s statutory library provision, if this arrangement
becomes unviable, the service would cease.
There is potentially £39,900 Section 106 money available to invest.
Here is a link to further information and the online library consultation questionnaire.
