New Central Library and Archives Opening 5 September

Readers young and old will have the chance to explore the new Central Library and Archives in Halifax, when it opens to the public for the first time at 9.30am on Tuesday 5 September.

This is the next stage of the remarkable transformation of Halifax Town Centre, with the new library opening next to the Piece Hall and Square Chapel creating a vibrant cultural, heritage and learning quarter.

Visitors will be able to admire the beautifully restored Square Church rose window and enjoy upward views of the tower and spire from the staircase as they tour the building, from the local studies section and the West Yorkshire Archives’ room on the lower ground floor to the adult non-fiction collections on the second floor.

Alongside a host of exciting activities to mark the opening a self-guided Heritage Trail has been put together to highlight the preserved historic features.

The old Central Library and Archives at Northgate, including the Halifax Visitor Information Centre, will close for the final time at 5.30pm on Tuesday 29 August to allow staff the time to transfer the remaining stock and equipment to the new building and do the final preparations for opening.
