About Us

Keighley Library

Keighley Library is a valued community hub which offers a wide range of cultural resources and activities to Keighley’s different communities. It serves a population of around 70,000 people many of whom have a Pakistani or Bangladeshi heritage. We work closely with many groups and organisations to improve access to literacy, information and culture. Keighley people value their library with between 500 and 1000 people a day coming through our doors.
