Re-opening of Stony Stratford Library 

We are absolutely delighted to inform you that Stony Stratford Library is now OPEN again!  There was a soft opening MK Libraries Service on Tuesday 22nd March 2022.  The Mayor of Milton Keynes, Mohammed Khan, formally opened this fantastic newly refurbished amenity on Saturday 26th March.  There was also a weekend of events from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th March 2022.  Please see photos of the event below.  

This has been a fantastic example of collaboration between the Town Council and its Principal Authority, Milton Keynes Council together with the help of local residents (on the 5-7 Church Street Working Group).  The project would not have been possible without funding from the Public Works Loan Board (PWLB), MKC S.106 Carbon Neutrality Funding and an anonymous donor.  

The first-floor kitchenette was funded by the Friends of Stony Stratford Library and the Community Foundation.  We are sure this will be a very welcome addition for those who hire the library out for talks and events. 

We wish to express our sincere thanks to all those involved.
