Menston Community Library

Bradford Libraries are switching over to a new computer system which will come into operation on 24th June.  Jill and the team of volunteers at Menston have been preparing for this but there may be a few delays as everyone gets used to the new system.  It also means that the online public access will change.  The following link will take you to the new look catalogue and the log-in to your library account (The PIN is the first two and last two digits of your date of birth)     


Fines have been waived on overdue books until the end of June – items returned late after 4th July 2021 will again incur overdue charges.

Opening ours have now been extended:

Monday         10.00 to 13.00  and 14.00 to 17.00

Wednesday    10.00 to 13.00 and 14.00 to 17.00

New Website for Bradford Foodbanks

Inn Churches have launched a new website to act as a one-stop shop for food support in Bradford - https://bradfordfoodbanks.org.uk/

The new site allows individuals and referral agencies to find their nearest foodbank and how to get or make a referral and also lists meal provision for people who are homeless.

More information – including how to donate - is available on the Inn Churches website - https://innchurches.co.uk/2020/11/24/find-a-foodbank/ 

 A New Online Group - Being There

One of the by-products of the Covid lockdown restrictions is that people of all ages have felt loneliness and anxiety. St John’s has formed what is hoped to be a peer led support group called Being There – because everyone needs to know there is someone there.
