HUDDERSFIELD people get the chance to have another say on the future of the library at a Kirklees Council scrutiny committee tomorrow.
Members of the public are welcome at the Overview and Scrutiny Panel for Culture and Leisure meeting, where details about the condition of the building will be discussed.
At the last meeting, the panel discussed the overall feasibility of the various options put forward for the library's future.
A team of consultants are investigating the options.
These are to:
* Repair and extend the library and art gallery
* Keep the façade of the library and art gallery building but replace the inside
* Replace the library and art gallery with a new building
* Repair and extend the current library and art gallery as part of a wider regeneration of the Piazza, Queensgate Market Hall and car park areas
* Keep the façade of the library and art gallery building but replace the inside, as part of a wider scheme
* Replace the library and art gallery with a totally new building as part of a wider scheme.
The results of the study are expected in Spring.
Tomorrow's meeting will take place at 2pm in Huddersfield Town Hall.
The panel will also examine how the library's future will link to the Renaissance Town Initiative, which aims to revamp the town centre.
Arrangements for library users while work is carried out on building will also be under the spotlight.
Clr Jean Calvert, chair of the panel, said it was important that the public attend the meeting and give their views.
"The future of the library has sparked a great deal of public interest, and as part of its work the scrutiny panel wants to hear from everyone with an interest and a view."
Once the results of the consultants' study are in, there will be an extensive public consultation, expected to take three months.
It is likely to include an exhibition of the outline scheme options, public meetings and meetings with key groups such as Huddersfield Civic Society, Town Centre Association, Huddersfield Renaissance Implementation Group, market traders, Huddersfield University and staff at the library.
