Reservations at the library and online
You can reserve any County catalogue item i.e. books, DVDs, CDs etc. online or by request at the library for local pick up. For users aged under 18 or over 65 the reservation service is free. For users aged 18-64 the cost is 60p if the notice to collect is sent by email. There is an additional charge if the notice to collect is sent by post.
If the book you are looking for is not available in the Bucks catalogue, you can also search for and reserve books from some nearly 300 SELMS partner libraries via the online catalogue. This gives you reservation access to over 6 million books. SELMS out of county reservations cost £3 per book. The County catalogue is here.

Local and tourist information
We hold a great deal of information on the village and the immediate local area, together with some information on other parts of Buckinghamshire and London. Our aim is to be the main information provider for both local people and visitors.
Become a Friend of the Library
We receive some support from Buckinghamshire Council. However the library does require village support. Your financial support will help ensure that we are able to provide the best possible stock selection for both adults and children. Your support will also help fund library improvements. We want the library to be first class asset for the village. You can become a Friend of the Library for an annual donation of £10. Donation Forms are available here and in the library.
