Welcome to
Farnham Common
Community Library

Farnham Common has a small Community Library, close to the village centre, incorporating a Children's Centre.

In October 2011 Farnham Common became one of the first libraries within Buckinghamshire to transition to Community Library status, where all library services are organised and run by unpaid local volunteers. 

New opening times:  Since becoming a Community Library we now stay open until 19.00 on Tuesdays and are open all day on Fridays.  You can click here for our opening times.

Our Community Library is a Registered Charity, Number 1153026

Need help with computers or using the Internet?
FCCL runs monthly IT Clinic sessions to assist library members in Farnham Common and nearby areas to overcome problems using computers or the Internet.  The sessions are held on Fridays, they are free and must be booked in advance in the library. 

The clinic sessions are for specific IT problems; for those who want more extended training to improve their IT knowledge and skills there is an excellent government-sponsored web site called "Learn My Way".  

More information here: LearnMyWay

Members of Bucks Libraries are welcome to use the free Public Access PCs in our library to use LearnMyWay, to experience and learn about the Internet and to discover the free online services we have available (for example, you can research your Family Tree).
