TWO new library and information centres are in the pipeline.
Library, payment and information services in two Kirklees town centres will all be under one roof later this month.
From Tuesday the Holmfirth payment and information services will transfer from the current cash office to the library.
The tourist and information centre is not affected.
And the Mirfield centre will open on Tuesday, January 30.
Clr Mark Hemingway, Kirklees Council's Cabinet member for customer services, said: "The moves in Holmfirth and Mirfield are part of the wider plans to make it easier for people to get the council services they want all in the same place and to have better and quicker access to services.
"The moves are part of the wider programme to create library and information centres across the district, where appropriate.
"The aim is for these centres to provide an improved service for people, bringing many different council services and community functions together in one building.
"People will be able to take advantage of all the usual library services as well as pay bills and inquire about benefits or council tax.
"People will also be able to go to special surgeries held by councillors and other services, such as Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing, the police and other agencies.
"Cash payments will be able to be made at the local post offices, thus supporting the future of those vital community services as well."
So far there are library and information centres in Birstall, Skelmanthorpe, Shepley, Lindley and Birkby/Fartown.
Kirklees officials say people's reaction has been very favourable.
The use at places where centres have opened has increased by an average of 126%.
People wanting to pay their bills at the centres can do so by cheque or card, with arrangements in place for cash payment at local post offices.
