Craft Club @ The Leeds Library

The Library is running a free monthly Members’ Craft Club. As well as giving you the opportunity to bring your own projects and work on them, you will be able to meet other members in a relaxed and creative atmosphere and share advice and swap ideas.

We welcome knitters, sketchers, felters, beaders, embroiderers, calligraphers, model makers, jewellery makers, cross-stitchers and others at all levels of ability.

We will provide free tea and coffee and all we ask is that your craft is portable as we can’t store things for you.

Craft Club dates are Mondays: 24th February, 30th March, later dates to follow, from 4.00pm to 7.00pm. Just drop in when you can. All welcome.

Film Club @ The Leeds Library

Our very popular Members’ Film Club is held twice a month (currently on the first Saturday and the middle Wednesday of the month) and is open to all Library Members.

Jane and Aidan select seasons of films and a list of forthcoming movies is available at the Counter.

Using the space in the New Room, we create an intimate setting using the library’s comfiest chairs!

Our current comedy season is I’ll Have What She’s Having.

Your membership of the Library automatically includes membership of the Film Club, so why not join us? All films are free of charge and refreshments are available at £4.00 per head. Please register your attendance via our Events page.
