Important Notice

Following government advice, Kirklees Library Services has decided to close all libraries until further notice.

Please DO NOT return books to the library, as they will likely be damaged in your attempt to post them through our letter box.

Borrowed books will be automatically renewed and there will not be any fines for overdue books.

Kirklees Library Services and DDCL trustees are looking at how to provide a library service in different ways and will announce this as soon as we can.

Keep safe. Keep positive. Keep reading!

Our Events

We have a wide range of events taking place in our building and use our Facebook page to promote these.

Click here to go to our Facebook page and view these.

Our events are organised by a range of people: local individuals, Kirklees Library Service, Kirkwood Hospice and DDCL.

Many of these events are groups who meet regularly, including talks about books and poetry; several craft groups; history.

They meet from weekly to monthly. Some charge a fee, like meditation, but most are free and open to anyone to join. Some are aimed at specific groups, for example, for children or those living with dementia.

Please note:

Although we are registered with the Charity Commission as the Denby Dale Community Project, or DDCP, we operate day-to-day as Denby Dale Community Library and, for short, DDCL.
