Warm spaces are friendly and comfortable places where you can keep warm and be with other people.

Warm spaces in libraries

In Kirklees we have 24 libraries that are warm spaces and everyone is welcome. All of our libraries are heated, so are comfortable to stay in for long periods of time. Every building has a range of both comfy seating, and more functional furniture for study or computer use. They are a place to keep warm, meet friends, sit and read and take part in activities.
