Opening Hours: the details

The library is always open at the appointed library times and run by professional library staff or trained volunteers. At other building opening times, library services can still be accessed and you may be supported by library volunteers.

The cafe and gift shop are open 10am to 4pm every day and from 9am to 12pm on Saturday.

Have you seen inside the new building yet?

As well as a new community library run in partnership with Kirklees Library Services, we have a café and gift shop run by Kirkwood Hospice an a flexible meeting space for hire by local community groups.

We would like your input:

  • to hear your ideas about how it can best be used by our local community and how we can work together with other local organisations
  • we are also hoping to recruit new community volunteers to help us run the building, charitable trust and cafe/gift shop.
