Holmfirth Library is set to be the latest to be offered a lifeline.
The library and other community services are threatened because of budget cuts Kirklees Council has to make.
The authority is faced with cutting tens of millions of pounds from its budget and has already intimated that only two of the libraries it currently runs will stay under council control.
That means that many village libraries could go unless communities rally round to try and save them.
Now it is the turn of Holmfirth.
Unlike Honley, Denby Dale and Skelmanthorpe there is no Friends of Holmfirth Library Group. To remedy this the group is hosting a public meeting at 8pm on January 15 at Holmfirth Methodist Church and they want the public to get involved to help save the library.
A campaigning group drawn from HOTT, Holme Valley Vision and the local Labour Party have held informal discussions with Clr Graham Turner (Kirklees Cabinet member for Resources) to see what can be done. And they want more support to help them save the library in Holmfirth Road.
The building features large collections of books, DVDs and CDs but is also home to a number of community groups including Readers Groups, a Story and Rhyme Time for children, family history sessions and courses run by the University of the Third Age.
Jane East, Labour’s parliamentary candidate for the Colne Valley constituency, met with the Valley Independent councillors and Friends of Honley Library to hear of their concerns and of their plans.
She said: “I know they have the same concerns and the same energy to save their services and I look forward to a good turnout at the meeting next month.”
