LIBRARIES are to provide more Kirklees Council services, following the success of a pilot scheme in Skelmanthorpe and Birstall.
Front Line Service Points (FLSPs) were set up in the two libraries in May and July respectively.
Customer service staff were trained to provide access to all council services in the library - including cash payments, housing inquiries and other concerns.
Now the scheme is to be installed in all libraries in Kirklees over the next three years.
Mr Roger Prescott, project manager said: "The move has come out of a Mori poll by central government which showed that people felt that they were being passed from service to service and were not getting what they wanted.
"What they wanted to do was go to one place and get their problem sorted.
"In Kirklees we are taking it a bit further than in other local authorities and are taking it out into the communities."
Under the new system, people will be able to conduct several transactions with the council on the spot such as paying their council house rent and council tax - and renewing their library books.
They can also phone the Kirklees Direct call centre free, and get on to the Kirklees Online website for free.
The service is aimed at copying that of the Information Point in Huddersfield at the Civic Centre.
Public consultation is to take place among parish and town councils.
