The first 'free' public library in Pontefract was built with money donated by the famous philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. The Art Nouveau building was officially opened on 21 September 1905. The current library was opened in 1975. The old Carnegie library later became
Pontefract Museum. See the downloads section for a brief history of Pontefract Library.
We are proud to offer Tovertafel, a magic table stimulating both physical and emotional activity encouraging social interaction that creates moments of happiness for people living with dementia.
