The new nature-themed space aims to inspire children to develop a love of learning by playing with various new games, toys, and books bought.
“Since opening in August, it’s been a big success and it’s great that many families are now spending longer in the library.
“This investment is all about helping families and communities and supporting children’s communication, language, and literacy skills to encourage life-long learning.”
The Friends of Airedale Library group applied for the grant from from the National Lottery Community Fund to redesign the area after feeling that the original space had become worn and dated.
A spokesperson for the group said: “We are pleased to see that the new area is already popular with children and families in our community.”
