VOLUNTEERS are being sought to take on the management of Silsden Library if it is transferred to the community.

A meeting to set up an ‘accountable body’ will be held at Silsden Town Hall – which houses the library – on February 6 at 7.30pm.

Anyone is welcome to go along if they are interested in becoming trustees on the new organisation. A separate meeting was held recently to recruit volunteers to staff the library.

Bradford Council recently last year that it would close several libraries across the district, including the one in Silsden, unless members of the community came forward to take over responsibility.
