Through The Pages : 250 Years of The Leeds Library

As part of our 250th Anniversary we are producing a commemorative book that looks at how the country’s oldest subscription library of its type has grown and prospered since its beginnings in 1768. Not merely an historical curiosity, today it is thriving as never before, playing a central role in the cultural life of Leeds and being a major venue for literary events.  This book celebrates the library, telling the fascinating story of its foundation, its buildings, its eminent members and the wonderful books it has acquired.
