March 2015: The library closed for renovation and to incorporate Council "One-stop" services, it reopened in the summer.


1968:  In the mid 1960s the library service  was operated from a room in Yeadon Town Hall, Aireborough Librarian Brian Shackleton reported to Aireborough Urban District Council that this service was inadequate.

The Council approved plans for a new library to e built on the site of Hudson's Yard (the site of Haworth Court ), unfortunately the County Planning Officer would not pass the plans.

An alternative site on Starkey's Fold was suggested but this too was abandoned. 

     In 1967 the former Co-operative Society building on Town Hall Square was approved for conversion into a library which opened on 20th June 1968.

An extensive renovation and refurbishment took place in 2015 to incorporate other Council services which had previously been administered from Micklefield House creating a "One Stop" and library.
