As part of Kirklees’ efforts to fight the coronavirus and reduce infection rates, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend some of our library services, including our ring and read service.

Throughout the pandemic, library staff and volunteers have had to adapt to new ways of working and use their skills in different areas.

They continue to make essential welfare calls to registered members over 70 and are out in our communities with the COVID Community Response team helping with the crisis.
