Calderdale Council wants the library to be an inclusive, fresh, modern community venue that will bring the very best of local heritage together.

The £9.25m library, reports the Huddersfield Examiner, will be 'a contemporary building that will fuse the styles, tones and colours of the historic Piece Hall, Square Chapel and the former Industrial Museum buildings with a modern venue.'

The library will extend over four floors, with reception and the children's library on the ground floor, and the lending library on the second floor.

Work is planned to begin next year and the library will open in the autumn of 2015.
