Iver Community Libraries
History
Iver Community Libraries Ltd was formed in 1996 following the closure of the Bucks County Council Library branches in Richings Park and Iver Village. It operated as an independent volunteer-led library with a book stock obtained by donations from the general public. The premises were Cornerstone -the Charity Shop in Richings Park - and, for a short while, St Peter’s Centre in Iver Village. However, both of these branches had to be abandoned in 2006 as we could no longer fund the rental charges to keep them open. With the purchase of the old Police Station by Iver Parish Council and its transformation into the Iver Parish Council Community Hub the opportunity presented itself to re-start the operation again. Negotiations with Bucks County Council Library Services have concluded with us being validated as a registered delivery and collection point for their on-line service known as “Click and Collect”. We also have our own stock of up-date adult fiction as well as a variety of childrens’ books to borrow. As well as offering traditional book lending services we are also planning to offer other services such as childrens’ story-times and help with getting to grips with digital technology.
