How do you think Buckingham's library should be set out?

£100,000 is being spent on it, creating a new computer area, better children's library and meeting spaces.

The plans are on show at the library from 10 til 2.

David Jones, Buckinghamshire County Council's Head of Library Services, said it was important that people who used the library should feed in at the planning stage.

To draw people in library staff have planned a treasure hunt, competitions and challenges, with a 'record breakers' theme, to chime with the theme of their children's Summer Reading Challenge that launches on Saturday.

A feature of Saturday's 'record breaker' theme will be a pair of trousers with the largest waistline in the world - 9ft 11ins.

Buckingham fire fighters will be there giving fire safety advice and showcasing their fire engine.

David Jones said:

"We want people to have some fun while they're looking at the improvement plans. Our staff will be on hand to talk to them and note their responses."
