Halifax Central Library & Archive
Free
Located on the Square Church site next to the Piece Hall, the new Halifax Central Library & Archive blends with the remains of the church into an iconic external design and striking internal layout.

Steps will lead up to the Library and to the new fourth gateway of the Piece Hall.

Access will also be available via a lift, taking people from Square Road to the Library and Archive entrance. A covered walkway will ensure that visitors will be protected during bad weather. Although linked to the new library building the lift will be available outside the library’s opening times to enable easy access to the Piece Hall from Square Road.

As well as the Piece Hall, the new Library and Archive will also have Square Chapel and the Industrial Museum as neighbours – all combining to create a highly interesting and welcoming destination for residents and visitors.
