HAWORTH needs help to expand its library – but not Haworth in West Yorkshire!

A representative for a library in the small suburb of Haworth in the North American state of New Jersey, has broadcast an appeal to locations and businesses which are named after this iconic village.

Beth Potter, co-president of the Friends of Haworth New Jersey Library, said: "We've begun construction on an expansion to our library.

"I'm approaching any entity that has the name Haworth associated with it, so therefore might have some Haworth pride.

"We do know for a fact that our town of 3,000 people is named for Haworth, England. One of the financiers who helped bring a railroad through our town in 1872 was himself a novelist and a fan of the Bronte sisters, and so he named our little station stop Haworth."

Councillor John Huxley, chairman of Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury Parish Council, said: "I'm happy to put their appeal to our council's finance committee.

"We're happy to talk to them and further our links."
