About Addingham Library

This library is housed in an old small building situated on Main Street which was built in 1668 and belongs to Addingham Parish Council. The library forms the lower level of a building with the Parish Council meeting rooms being above the library. Access is reasonable as there is a short ramp to the entrance.

As well as over 3,000 books and free internet access, the library offers storytimes, taster sessions for IT learners, and access to information throughout the district.

Management of the library was transferred to the community in November 2011 and volunteers provide the service with support from Bradford Libraries.
