Baildon Hybrid Library - opening hours

Baildon Town Council met on Thursday 19 March 2020 to agree the best course of action for the Town Council during the Coronavirus pandemic.

It was decided that all volunteers would be withdrawn from Baildon Library in order to keep them safe. The library is to remain closed from 12pm on Saturday 21 March 2020.

The official statement that has been released in relation to the library is as follows:

Baildon Town Council will withdraw the Town Council volunteers from service at Baildon Library until circumstances change. The continuation of library services in the Baildon branch library will therefore be a decision for Bradford Council, as the Libraries Authority. If Baildon Library is closed to the public, the nearest available staffed library is at Wellcroft in Shipley. Shipley Library is currently opening from 10.00am to 2.00pm from Monday to Saturday. These openings hours may change and can be checked at www.bradford.gov.uk or 01274 437150.
