The Leeds Library

Library • Warehouse Hill

"Leeds Library, Leeds by DS.Emotion. This is the perhaps less-known Leeds Library, but we think it's particularly special. Founded in 1798, it is the UK's oldest surviving subscription library of its type. It's a small but mighty venue, and visitors are asked to plan a visit in advance, so it's probably easier to check out the library's event calendar and come along to those for a full library viewing. This historic library isn't stuck in the past - it's constantly connecting with community groups and wider initiatives to open its doors and engage with the public. A super little find right at the heart of the city."
