Woodford's Library


Your Community Library

Woodford Halse Library is currently part of Northamptonshire Library Service, but in the near future we expect it to move to being managed by the community. Current services are provided under the Northamptonshire County Council Library Plus scheme but the future of these, and how our Community Library will work with other library services, is unclear. You can find out more about Library Plus in Northamptonshire here.

In the meantime volunteers are helping Library Service staff, and the Parish Council is providing WiFi and computer services.

The library has a range of lending services,  as well as a collection of useful books on the history of the village and the local area.
