What was Greetland Library on Rochdale Road will be sold with planning consent to demolish the current building and build a new two-bedroom home.
The library will appear in the online sale held on November 8 by property auctioneer Pugh with a guide price of £70,000.
Auctioneers say drawings associated with the planning application detail “a dwelling comprising two bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom, with gardens and parking for two vehicles".
Will Thompson. from Pugh, said: “Greetland is a sought-after place to live, and the village has good facilities, including primary schools and shops, as well as having excellent communication links with Halifax, Huddersfield and the M62 motorway.
“While local people were saddened by the closure of the library – which was part of the £2m cost savings that Calderdale Council were obliged to make - it’s positive news that the site will now provide another much-needed new home for the village.”
