THE history of Almondbury Library is to be documented in a booklet – and its authors need your help.
Friends of Almondbury Library (Foal) and Kirklees Libraries would like to hear your stories of the library including information on the 1963 refurbishment.
And Foal and Kirklees are keen to trace the following missing items:
l A stained glass portrait of the library’s founder Andrew Carnegie
l A silver trowel from a stone-laying ceremony
l A golden key presented the library’s official opening
l Masonry ball finials which once adorned the building
Foal have already started researching the library’s history and have uncovered the architect’s name, original plans and images from the West Yorkshire Archives.
All information should be emailed to Rob Greenwood of Foal at firstname.lastname@example.org or tel: 01484 223324.
