Library Service Delivery Review
Local people are being asked to have their say on the future of community libraries in Calderdale. This is to ensure they meet their needs.
Calderdale Council is holding a public consultation to drive a review of its 15 community libraries. This will take place from Monday 5 March until 30 April 2018.
The way that people use libraries is changing. The Council is looking at what is best for each individual library and community now and in the future. This is to ensure a modern, relevant service which is able to thrive in the 21st century.

Cllr Susan Press, Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Neighbourhood Services, said:
“We know how much libraries mean to local people. We are committed to maintaining high-quality services that meet their needs. We are reviewing our community libraries to ensure we continue to provide the best possible libraries service to residents. In a cost-effective way to meet the service’s challenging requirement to save £160,000 by 2020. We urge people in each part of Calderdale to share their views.”
