The building is owned and managed by Bradford Diocese, and includes St Margaret's Church, but the centre has several facilities for the community located in the building as well. The library occupies a floor area of 83 square metres. The library is fully accessible by means of a passenger lift. As well as over 4,000 books and free internet access, the library offers regular storytimes, taster sessions for IT learners and access to information throughout the district.
