Can’t find something on COIN?

COIN is a constantly changing resource and entries continue to be added and updated. With each change, we aim to create a central point of reference for the Milton Keynes community.

  • We do not maintain private contact details for listed groups and any new entries submitted for inclusion in the COIN database can only be accepted with at least one valid online link which signposts visitors to up-to-date information.
  • To suggest a group or organisation for adding to COIN please complete the online form.
  • If your suggestion is accepted and the information validated, the entry will be added to COIN. 
  • Please note that entries are accepted at the discretion of the Milton Keynes City Council libraries.
