Changes at St. Augustine’s Library

St. Augustine’s Library will close at 12 noon on Saturday 1 April.

We are currently working with a local community group to secure an accountable body and volunteers so that library provision can continue.

We are hopeful that the library will re-open in summer.

If you need to return your books, your nearest library from 3 April is City Library. Alternatively you can renew your books online or by using the 24/7 phone line 01274 430094.

You can use your library ticket at any library in Bradford.

We thank all our customers for their continued loyalty and support.
