A NEW volunteer-run library in Queensbury has officially opened its doors.

Queensbury Community Programme (QCP), in High Street, is home to the new facility after the Bradford Council-run library in Victoria Hall shut earlier this year.

And while it has been open since September, a special ceremony was held today to mark officially mark the date.

Activities were held for families and children throughout the day and Councillor Doreen Lee, Deputy Lord Mayor of Bradford, cut the ribbon.

There are plans to run storytime sessions and a book club at the library.

Computers are also available to use, as well as free internet access.

While the provision will be smaller than at Victoria Hall, books can be ordered in if a visitor has a specific request.
