Pop-up for new library plans

A new pop-up exhibition will be held at Halifax Central Library, focused on plans for the new Central Library and Archives. 

The new library is due to open this summer, and this exhibition will give visitors a sneak peek at how the building will look. 

The exhibition will feature images of what the inside and outside of the new Central Library and Archives will look like as well as sample furniture for the new building. There will also be more information about the layout of the library and its exciting new features. 

Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Communities, Cllr Susan Press, said: 

“As work progresses for the new library, I know many people are eager to see what the building will look like, both inside and out. This exhibition will give visitors an idea of what they can expect from the new library and is also a chance to meet our Library Ambassadors.” 

The exhibition has been created by the Library Ambassadors – a group of volunteers who will welcome visitors to the new Central Library and Archive. They will also play a key role in highlighting the stories of famous Halifax residents and ensuring that visitors easily find their way around the new building.  

The Ambassadors will also be on hand at the pop-up exhibition to answer any questions visitors may have. The exhibition is open on from 10.30am – 12noon on the following dates. 

  • Tuesday 11 and 18 April
  • Friday 28 April
  • Tuesday 2 May
  • Friday 12 May
  • Tuesday 16 May
  • Friday 26 May 

The exhibition will be in the former access room, behind the Children’s Library in Halifax Central Library, next to Northgate House.
