Kirklees libraries are at the heart of communities and allow local people to access a range of services, including books, free time on computers and information about all Kirklees Council services. Local organisations are encouraged to be involved in the services on offer. If you can spare a few hours a week and are interested in working with the community to help us deliver the library service, you can sign up to volunteer in your local library.
