From Monday 3rd April Baildon Library will reduce opening hours as follows:
This is to enable us to continue to work with Baildon Town Council to eventually operate as a ‘hybrid’ library – a mixture of volunteers and library staff.
Opening hours will increase when all is in place.
Many thanks for your patience and co-operation.

This building, opened in 1971 forms part of a complex which also includes The Ian Clough Hall, all owned by Bradford Metropolitan District Council. The building is situated in an exposed elevated position just on the edge of the village centre. The library has a floor area of 468 square metres. There is a public car park next to the Ian Clough Hall.
Following allocation of Baildon Urban Village funding in 2005, the mezzanine floor is now a Learning Zone which also accommodates a meeting space. The children's area has also been fully revamped.
As well as over 15,000 books and free internet access, the library offers regular storytimes, taster sessions for IT learners, a good local history resource and access to information throughout the district.
