Free entry


Visit Normanton Library and open your mind to reading! Normanton Library was originally a free public Carnegie Library and was opened in 1907. In 2001 the library moved to its current site in the former community centre on Castleford Road.

With access to a wide range of books, local and family history collection and a programme of weekly activities for all ages, Normanton Library is the place to expand your mind.

This venue is talking part in Wakefield Council’s Seed Collection campaign for 2023! To take part, collect any conkers, acorns, sweet chestnuts, and beech nuts that you see on the ground or on the trees, and then drop your collected seeds into the seed bin.
