History Room

The History Room at the Elland Library will be closed throughout August.  Our volunteers are ready for a well deserved rest.   However, subject to the library being open, if you have any urgent requests then I am sure that one of our team would be able to attend with you at an agreed time.

The Readyhough Room at Elland Library is open on the following days:

Tuesday and Thursday afternoon 1.30 pm – 3.30 pm. 

Everyone is welcome to come and explore or examine the fascinating photographs and artefacts of old Elland and district.

The team of volunteers have worked hard to organise and display the material and will be there to help visitors with information.

The history room has been named after our own Neville Readyhough.   Neville was a valued member of the Greater Elland Historical Society and valuable committee member.  Neville lived and worked in Elland and his knowledge of the area was second to none.  Ask a question and you could rely on Neville knowing the answer.

The Committee, and I’m sure the people of Elland, would like to thank Lorraine and her team for all their hard work.
