PEOPLE living in Thornhill Lees have been invited to help redecorate their local library.

The project, BOOST, is being run by the Library, Information and Children’s Centre in Brewery Lane and the Council’s arts agency Loca.

Artist Lesley Fallais wants local people to help test colours and designs on a model of the library over the summer and early autumn.

Activities for members of the community are also being held on Tuesday mornings as part of the project.

Ms Fallais said: “We’ve chosen the BOOST theme for the creative activities for this project as it represents the library team’s desire to get to know more local people and boost the image and visibility of the library building.

“We’ve been out and about promoting BOOST and running creative BOOST challenges such as hoola hoop, plate spinning, and football kick-ups at events across Thornhill Lees.”

Local residents have been visiting the library on Tuesday mornings throughout the summer to take part in BOOST activities.

Coun Jean Calvert, from Kirklees Council’s cabinet, said: “The BOOST project is a great way for local people to get involved and contribute to ideas for a unique artwork to enhance the building and make it more visible.

“The centre encompasses activities and services that cater for people of all ages and the library team is keen for local people to share their thoughts and ideas about the building and find out more about what it has to offer.”
