Third Try

Welcome to Walton Community Library !

We have links with Wakefield Library services but are a volunteer-led, independent library with free membership available to everyone. We have a great selection of books and  jigsaws to loan, free Wi-Fi and public computers, plus photocopying and printing at a small cost. There are board books and toys for our youngest members, and an interesting selection of books for school-age borrowers.

WCL also arranges  many regular meetings and groups, plus special events in the village throughout the year. We have strong support from Working for Walton, the Parish Council, our churches, the New Inn and Walton Club.
